The estimation of the temperature and airflow distribution in buildings via the location of sensor networks is a nonlinear and multiscale problem where dynamics and measurements are (in general) stochastically perturbed. The goal here is to reliably outline temperature and airflow in certain areas by placing sensors on prescribed admissible locations while optimizing several criteria. A trustworthy estimation, provided that closed-loop controllers are in place, becomes a main step in reducing the energy consumption of such control systems.
