Make people feel thermal comfort through interactivity

Make people feel thermal comfort through interactivity

Saint-Gobain Research Paris and the start-up Dataveyes developed an innovative application to highlight the thermal comfort provided by several roof insulations. At the heart of the prototype are two houses side by side, showing the difference in performance between two roofs, each insulated with a different material. The prototype allows users to manipulate several complementary dimensions on these houses.

  • The first dimension is time. The user can choose a season, a month, an hour of the day, or even the most representative days of a season in the year.
  • The next dimension is space. The user manipulates a simplified 3D plan of the house, showing the walls, doors and windows. Each room in the house changes color and particles as the user moves through time or changes the exterior settings.
  • Finally there are the external parameters. The user can modify the orientation of the house, the degree of humidity or dryness, the type of roof, and even experiment with sensitivity by defining different ranges of comfort around the ideal temperature.

All these interactions have a simultaneous effect on the two homes compared in the application
