The Smart Building as an essential element of the Smart City
The specific focus on Smart Building inside the Smart City domain, is one of the strategic visions of our companies.
We focus on the 4.0 model that provides the city with a distributed intelligence in which the building becomes a node of the Internet of Things (IoT). Buildings will thus be prepared to gather information from multiple sensors, make a valuable analysis and make all this flow of information available to a higher-level system or city platform, capable of analysing and detecting patterns to produce preventive actions. Based on this model, some of the cities’ most urgent challenges can be addressed: mobility, air quality, waste management, safety or energy efficiency.
