Operating public buildings is a significant expense that city governments want to control better. Smart buildings ensure occupant safety, while helping to save energy and costs. Cities are deploying IoT technology that utilizes advanced automation and building systems integration to measure, monitor, control, and optimize operations.
Goals and Objectives
The end goal is optimization – the deployment of a set of building systems capable of adapting in real time to both internal policies and external signals.
Integrated building control systems, IoT modules and sensors, analytics and data management, smart elevators including lift mechanization (pulleys, fly wheels) and motors with controllers and sensors.
Use Case Summary
Public building infrastructure includes smart elevators which autonomously adapt to vary passenger volumes and frequency to move people more efficiently in the building. It also includes information management systems to manage how other building equipment operates, such as HVAC, to use energy in the most cost-effective way. Analytics and data management tools accommodate the increasing volume of data associated with the instrumented and connected equipment in the facility and make this data understandable and actionable.
