Using Sensor Technology and Automating HVAC Systems to Reduce the Spread of Infectious Disease in Buildings

The AIA CEU Course, Using Sensor Technology and Automating HVAC Systems to Reduce the Spread of Infectious Disease in Buildings, is being provided to educate end users, consultants, engineers and architects alike. In this course you will learn the environmental factors that are relevant to the spread of infectious disease in buildings. In this currently shifting environment it is more vital than ever to understand the current standards developed by CDC, EPA, ASHRAE, as well as other organizations. Once this foundation has been established the next, learning objective is the identification of various sensor technologies, topologies, and relevant sensor types as well as system design using sensors and building automation systems.
