Recent advancements in low-cost sensing technologies have proliferated the Internet of Things. IoT, as it is known, provides connectivity to any device via Internet Protocol, enabling more efficient monitoring and control of any medium, including active buildings. So how can we leverage these networks to improve building performance?
If we want to improve and decarbonise our built environment, we need to efficiently collect, analyse and leverage the data each building generates. Good, clean, comparable data is the key to optimising building performance, improving the use of resources, and making a significant stride toward predictive maintenance and control. The question is how do we standardise this?
