Jarvis is the name of Iron Man's computer system which manages his home, hence the name of this project. The main aspect of Project Jarvis is to help save electricity in your home which then helps save the Earth and of course, helps save a bit more money each month. The electricity usage is logged per room into an SD card on an open source micro controller such as an Arduino or Raspberry Pi, I chose Arduino. The code on the MCU then interacts with a larger more complex network known as a neural network which has been programmed in a separate application. This software then makes intelligent decisions using the environment and its sensors to help beat the current months data which is still on the SD card. Jarvis will attempt to save more energy than the previous month without getting in the way of your usual living style.
Who is Jarvis?
Jarvis is a virtual assistant, similar to Siri but with a lot more power. Jarvis is the brains behind all operations, he makes the choices and decisions for home automation and much more. Jarvis is based off Artificial Intelligence and is capable of answering complex questions, maths equations, reading social network messages, conversing, being a top class assistant and much more. Jarvis speaks back through speakers located in the rooms and you can speak to him! That's right, if you have a question, simply ask it wherever you are in your home. You don't need to pull out your phone and ask Jarvis to do something, he is always there. Jarvis is wherever you are, in the home, office and in your pocket if you use our Android mobile app.
Every home has lights, appliances and other electronic or electrical gadgets. These all consume energy even if you aren't present in the room. Jarvis is smart enough to switch off lights and unused appliances when you walk out the room. If you turn on a light in your room, Jarvis will compare that specific lights consumption in real time and compare it to data from other lights. If it detects that the light you have on is less efficient, Jarvis will automatically switch that light off and turn on a more efficient light instead. How about automatically switching off cell phone chargers when your phone is disconnected? All these small things in human error or laziness add up in energy consumption and on your monthly bill. Jarvis is here to help make energy savings available to everyone without the owners even noticing. He logs data periodically and that data can be used to help reduce more electricity where possible each month. This way Jarvis will always strive to exponentially increase energy savings and decrease your bill.
