Explore the technology that enables the next wave of smart buildings – intuitive working and living spaces that adapt so people feel comfortable, safe, and healthy.
New sensor technology and advances in machine learning will support people to spend a safer, productive and more pleasant time at the office. Or allow people in hospitals and care centers to be safe and supported 24/7, unobtrusive and with respect for their privacy.
These exciting new applications are driven by, amongst others, extremely compact radars that track people and remotely monitor vital signs, by ubiquitous small sensors to monitor air and water quality, and by wireless technology that enables fine-grained positioning and safe access.
Smart, intuitive offices seamlessly adapt to how many people are present, and to who they are and what they’re doing. The building’s temperature, lighting, and atmosphere are adjusted accordingly. The use of energy is minimized and access is monitored unobtrusively.
