Is an intelligent building “smart”? Or is a smart building intelligent? Can a comparison be made between buildings and the human body? If so, do buildings need a central nervous system to maximise functionality and efficiency?
The presentation will address this and the following topics:
- What are intelligent building systems and what benefits do they provide?
- What is the infrastructure needed to support these systems and why converge the networks?
- Barriers to adoption and risks
- The effect of design and implementation of converged networks on the other parts of the construction.
