A wealth of examples are now emerging across industry sectors of successful implementations of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. These projects are creating new efficiencies, competitive edge, cost savings and revenues, and demonstrating that the Internet of Things is here to stay.
One such example is the number of successful IoT-equipped Smart Buildings that are being built. Intel, Tatung and Elitegroup Computer Systems (ECS) are working together on such a project, focused on creating smart energy savings for businesses.
The IoT solution uses an IoT Gateway integrated with an I/O board that provides a smart connection between energy management systems and other commercial building devices.
The partners have completed a first step verification phase which produced “excellent” performance from a smart, energy-saving conference room. The next stage is to use the technology to address an entire smart building, targeting a 30% improvement in building energy efficiency.
