Smart Buildings

Have you ever used a remote control to operate hear, air, lights, or security in your home? These are automated processes made possible by smart building research. A smart building uses sensors, microchips, and actuators to collect data and manage the system being used. This technology offers energy reduction management and optimizes space use.

What we build dictates how we use energy and how we value the natural environment and natural resources.
