The SARBAU project is a study on a highly self configuring building automation and control network using IP as field level protocol. UPnP is used for device operation and control. The SARBAU concept covers the use cases initial setup, commissioning, operation, and retrofit. Group address agents are employed to reduce load on the devices and control points for collaborative commands. For evaluation of the system, an experimental 500 kBps two wire IP fieldbus PHY layer has been developed, which also supplies power to the devices. ldquoPetrdquo automation devices operating on this fieldbus are used for testing the system.
