What an exciting time at this this year’s IBCon 2016! Together, we teamed up with Comfy, EnTouch, Lucid, Volteo and many others in the Intel IoT ecosystem, demonstrating solutions that directly address IoT convergence challenges like data interoperability and device management, operational technology and IT convergence, and cyber security. Learn more about how the Intel IoT technologies are enabling transformational change and check out the interview Intel IoT’s Sunita Shenoy had at IBCon.
Ready to build upon your knowledge? Take a look at some of our demos and case studies to come out of this spectacular event.
Improving Tenant Experiences
What could be better than a comfy office filled with happy occupants? Comfy, a software company that is revolutionizing the way people interact with buildings, showed how building managers can improve occupants’ daily lives through instant personalization. Their solution enables individuals to control temperature, lighting, windows and more, all from Comfy’s smartphone app or any web browser. Watch our Comfy demo video from IBCon, read more in our smart office white paper, and visit comfyapp.com.
Smart Buildings Made Easy,
Another fantastic example of making building occupants’ lives easier was demonstrated by EnTouch Controls, which provides wireless building energy management systems that are quick and easy to install. No additional wires or upgrade server installations are needed, and EnTouch Controls handles the whole installation and commissioning process, making things easy for customers. Watch our EnTouch Controls demo video from IBCon and then learn more about EnTouch Controls at entouchcontrols.com.
Ultimate Fan Experiences: Smart Stadiums
Talk about too cool for school. Arizona State University is undertaking a multi-year renovation of its football stadium with help from both Intel, and Volteo, to improve game day experiences and increase operational efficiency. For example, an interactive “Victory Cheer” creates a fun competition to see which section can cheer the loudest; sensors installed underneath the bleachers send sound data to the cloud, which is displayed as a colorful heat map on a Jumbotron within a few seconds. I, for one, am definitely looking forward to experiencing this solution in person!
Bright Ideas for Smart Lighting
Intelligent lighting control can save energy in a number of ways, including controlling lighting based on present schedules and vacant room sensing, dimming lighting when natural light levels permit, and adjusting lighting to meet individual user preferences. The Daintree Networks System Controller, equipped with an Intel Xeon processor, provides processing and storage to enable capture and reporting of energy usage, system alerts, and event information.
A Gateway to Smart Buildings
Stepping up to the smart building challenge, the Dell Edge Gateway 5000 Series aggregates, secures, and relays sensor data. It’s based on our Intel Atom processor E3825 and can perform local analytics so that only relevant information is sent on to the cloud.
Intel Building Management Platform
We teamed up with Candi and Lucid for new uses featuring the Intel Building Management Platform. Candi PowerTools taps into the Intel Building Management Platform to connect to a broad set of building systems and sensors, filters and securely transfers data to the cloud (or on-premise) servers while facilitating required protocol translations needed in between. Watch our Candi demo video from IBCon and then visit candicontrols.com to learn more.
Then there’s Lucid BuildingOS, a leading cloud-based building management platform, integrating and aggregating portfolio-wide building and metering systems data for simple, collaborative analysis. Their BuildingOS software is completely vendor-agnostic and natively connects to 175+ building technologies. Watch our Lucid demo video from IBCon and then visit lucidconnects.com to learn more.
New Buildings: Intel India Smart Building
Intel’s SRR3 is a 10-story office-laboratory building in Bangalore, India. The building is equipped with nearly 10,000 sensors for temperature, occupancy, lighting, energy, water, and air quality management and monitoring. Some of the key functional use cases implemented in the building include connected lighting, HVAC learning algorithms, intelligent demand response, visitor vehicle digital escort, and differential usage of backup power. Learn more about our smart building case study.
Bringing Visibility to Data: Intel Headquarters
During IBCon we conducted a tour to our Intel corporate headquarters featuring state of the art systems including wind turbines, fuel cells and solar. But just how do we tap into all that data? Enter Intel IoT ecosystem partner Switch Automation. They aggregated seven data sources into a single database, then connected the Intel IoT gateway to our building automation network and created drivers that communicate with all of those systems.
That’s a wrap from this year’s IBCon 2016. I’d like to thank all our ecosystem partners and customers for such a memorable event!
