Building system sensors collecting, storing, analyzing, and in some cases interpreting data in every square inch of a building greatly challenge the concept of privacy. With the rise of privacy awareness and the introduction of regulatory compliance (such as GDPR in the EU and CCPA in California), building owners and operators are expected to demonstrate commitment to lawfulness, transparency, and data protection.
From design and construction to operations and maintenance, building processes can be represented by millions of data points. A Digital Twin, the contextual model of an entire smart building ecosystem, serves as a repository of data from BIM, the BAS and sensor networks associated with the building’s infrastructure. It acts as a bridge between the physical and digital world, as the dynamic replica is fed real-time data from actual operations of the physical asset. AI and machine learning integrations help to contextualize and process that data to uncover operation optimization opportunities within the virtual environment that can be applied to the real building.
The next generation of wireless – 5G, CBRS, Wi-Fi 6 – is on the horizon. Increased speeds, low latency, and reduced congestion on mobile networks will revolutionize the way we use an ever-increasing number of IoT devices and design in-building communication infrastructures. 5G and CBRS are technologies providing cellular service, WI-FI 6 is a short-range wireless access technology, and BLE is a wireless personal area network designed especially for short-range communication – all technologies are complementary and will each support different use cases in the built environment.
Data runs almost every aspect of our lives. Making good business decisions as a real estate organization, whether on a small scale or for an enterprise-wide initiative, requires an ever-deeper understanding of individual assets, portfolios and shifting markets. In order to gain this level of information insight in today's complex, connected world, a sound data strategy based on a high-performance blend of business intelligence, analytics and data science, must be set.
The new generation of smart buildings embraces interconnectivity and interoperability and is based on a comprehensive strategy including innovative building networks operating systems, comprehensive and integrated applications, IoT, 5G and wireless, immersive experiences, cybersecurity, privacy, and new technologies such as machine learning and Digital Twins. This podcast will present some of the most progressive and successful smart building projects from around the world.
