Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) is the technology of indoor and vehicular environmental comfort. Its goal is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality. HVAC system design is a subdiscipline of mechanical engineering, based on the principles of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer. HVAC is an important part of residential structures such as single family homes, apartment buildings, hotels and senior living facilities, medium to large industrial and office buildings such as skyscrapers and hospitals, vehicles such as cars, trains, airplanes, ships and submarines, and in marine environments, where safe and healthy building conditions are regulated with respect to temperature and humidity, using fresh air from outdoors.
Amazon FreeRTOS is a microcontroller operating system that makes small, low-powered edge devices easy to program, deploy, secure and maintain. Amazon FreeRTOS is based on FreeRTOS, a popular open source operating system for microcontrollers, and includes software libraries that make it easy to securely connect devices locally to AWS Greengrass, directly to the cloud, and update them remotely.
