viboo AG is a spin-off company of researchers from the Urban Energy Systems Lab at Empa and the Automatic Control Lab at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. viboo offers Predictive Control as a Service to manufacturers of building energy technology components. With minimal integration and commissioning effort, the operation of their products can be optimized. Self-learning Predictive Control for smart thermostats is the first feature available on the platform.
It reduces the heating and cooling energy consumption of a building by 20-40% while improving thermal comfort. The technology is based on a combination of physically informed machine learning (ML) and mathematical optimization. Due to its flexibility, our technology enables the easy integration of future topics such as demand side management.
