Description The thesis focuses on the use of machine learning (ML) algorithms to estimate, in a low-cost way, the temperature in indoor environments. The thesis work consists of two main steps, that is the development of (1) a data acquisition system and (2) a temperature estimation system. For step (1), both PCs and Raspberry Pi devices will be employed. Raspberry Pis will be used for acquiring temperature sensor data while PCs will be employed to measure features related/influencing the temperature (e.g., the temperature measured by sensors in CPU, motherboard, hard disk, etc., as well as CPU usage, interrupts rate, etc.).
The final goal of the thesis work is to use the simple data acquired by the PCs (and the other features) to estimate room temperature through ML regression techniques especially based on artificial neural networks.
