We built software to control temperatures and humidities, to control the analyzer sampling systems, and to provide the graphical user interface for all monitoring activities. We also built simulation models to predict critical variables such as CO2 levels.
The software was installed and worked as needed for the project. This project also inspired our research on HVAC systems, funded by NIST.

A presentation made to NASA Johnson Space Center (pdf) summarizes this work.
The work also inspired research leading to a government grant from NIST to study fault diagnosis in VAV (Variable Air Volume) systems, an advanced (but failure-prone) form of HVAC. The final report on that HVAC diagnostics study can be found at NIST Final Report: A New Methodology for Fault Detection Observers in VAV Systems .
