There is tremendous momentum towards utilizing technology in buildings in new ways, enabled by advances in computing power, miniaturization, networking, and necessity. These advances have been developed just in time to meet environmental and societal needs for energy savings / carbon emissions reduction, building operational efficiencies, occupant satisfaction, health & wellness, and increased productivity.
This program addresses advances in building technology, including the application of the Internet of Things (IoT) and digital twins, artificial intelligence and automated occupancy management, and COVID-era innovations such as touchless navigation and pandemic-level air filtration. It is designed to guide participants towards understanding the technology and its application within their projects – all the way to the practical aspects of creating an intelligent building at different levels of complexity, from smart to autonomous. Exercises will allow class members to collaborate on case studies where they can apply the concepts from the lectures to create their own model.
