  • Patent number: 11477870
    Abstract: An environmental control equipment control apparatus controls an environment of a target space using a plurality of environmental control equipment. The control apparatus includes a receiver and an electronic controller. The receiver may receive state information relating to states of a plurality of subject persons. In this case, the electronic controller controls a plurality of kinds of environmental control equipment such that the state information of the plurality of subject persons received by the state information receiver satisfies a predetermined target state condition. The receiver may receive a second environmental stimulus given to a subject person other than a first environmental stimulus caused by control of the environmental control equipment. In this case, the electronic controller controls the environmental control equipment such that an influence of the second environmental stimulus received by the environmental stimulus receiver on the subject person is cancelled or reduced.
