Smart City and Intelligent Building

- Jul 26, 2019-

A truly smart city should focus on its inhabitants and strive to achieve three goals: improving quality of life, economic competitiveness and sustainability.

Cities consume nearly 75% of global energy and account for 80% of global emissions. By 2050, 66% of the world's population is expected to live in cities. In addition, cities face new challenges, such as severe budget constraints, high expectations of residents and the need to attract employment and investment. In order to be more efficient, sustainable, livable and attractive, cities need to become smarter.

Smart buildings help to better manage and monitor assets, reduce energy costs and carbon footprint, and shape the world around us. Through intelligent building technology, air temperature can be controlled, lighting personalized, safety remote-controlled and process streamlined.

Armed with the advanced technologies of Internet of Things (IOT), M2M, edge computing and intelligent data analysis, intelligent buildings can enhance residents' experience and create more attractive and ideal workplaces. The experience of a building user can be personalized according to his or her preferences, while real-time data and predictive analysis can optimize his or her workspace. It can also track and improve residents' health, performance and productivity, which is essential for any enterprise, because employees are the most important assets in any company.

At the same time, in intelligent building, building intelligent system helps to maintain the best performance level, so as to make it efficient and improve the operation efficiency of the building. New sensors and control devices have succeeded in creating dynamic, grid-integrated buildings that now operate at the lowest level of energy consumption. Intelligent buildings respond to real-time operating conditions - turning off lights automatically when meeting rooms are empty, lowering the temperature of thermostats when outdoor temperatures rise, or diagnosing faults and correcting them immediately, etc. - it will make the buildings run with the highest efficiency.

Intelligent building is flexible enough to meet the changing needs of residents. It has enough intelligence, can take many factors into account under external and internal conditions, can actively correct in the process, so as to improve efficiency, and meanwhile can efficiently meet the goal of energy saving. Intelligent building has an incredible prospect, which is possible by powerful and reliable technology.
