Smart Buildings

Improving security and safety for buildings, optimizing operation and enhancing a better experience to end-users, providing the benefits to the property owners, service providers, customers and end-users. Galaxy Realtime Location System – GalaxyRTLS provides important information about the “Location Based Service” for the Smart Buildings

Buildings, including many office complexes or apartments,… when equipped the “smart” features, providing the benefits to many stakeholders, such as:

  • Property owners – real estate company
  • Service provider –  security companies, cleaning companies…
  • Customers – companies lease office or open work-space
  • End-users – workers, employees, using of buildings space for their works

“Smart” features can be equipped by Internet of Things devices (#IoTs), automatic control program integrated with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and many other utilities.

Realtime location information of objects in buildings and location based services also contributed to create an “smart buildings”.

Some features that Galaxy Realtime Location System – GalaxyRTLS can provide:

(1) To improve the security and safety of the buildings: Security and safety are important factors when operating the buildings in normal conditions daily, and in case of the emergency . Location information of end users (employees, visitors, …) is important information, combined with a security camera, warning lights, security staffs … to:

  • Access control and visitor management (employees, residents, visitors…)
  • Automate Emergency Procedures

Employees or visitors enter the building is allowed to move in the authorized areas. The system can be combined with door control system to lock/unlock for the area is allowed/not allowed in for each specific audience.

Authorize and open door automatically

The cleaner worker to do buildings cleaning services daily, in the assigned areas. Security patrol guard through the specified locations, check the critical equipment, send the report immediately if any problems occur, or has any damaged equipment. Galaxy Realtime Location System – GalaxyRTLS can record the journey of security guard and cleaner worker in the building, export the location based reports in real time, displayed on the monitor software and notified to the relevant departments via email/SMS…

The system can also alert/warning if security guard or cleaner worker not follow the procedure.

Update the position and task of the employee in the realtime

Monitoring of the position of high value assets, as well as the operating status, notification when there is any abnormal moving of assets to avoid losses.

Asset Monitoring

In case of incidents in the buildings, the specified location information of each person is extremely important information to carry out rescue work.

Support the rescue work

(2) To optimize space, operation and cost savings

For the open work-space, what areas are being used, and where are available, the areas are often used is an important information to optimize the space and relocate the layout.

Information about the using status of the cafeteria, bars, coffee in the buildings at peak hours can be helpful to employees in order to arrange to not wait too long if want to use the relevant services.

(3) To enhance user experience

Path finding in the large buildings is the big concert for the visitor. With location information updates in real time, GalaxyRTLS system can provide the visitor navigation service, search the position and status of any assets or objects in the realtime.

Internet of Everything: HiBricks

The trends:

1. Internet of Everything:

– Devices are all connected through internet that customer can easily access to and control at any time, and anywhere. (expertise everywhere, connectedness)

– Machine to machine communication (M2M), machine to human communication (M2H): bring the unbelievable convenience and comfortable to the human, which have never had before.

– Data pushes to cloud. The big data is the valuable data to analyze the customer habits, energy saving, give an advice… for the human (big judgment) (will be discussed in the next phase or next project).

2. Customization and flexibility

The progression

From the beginning: PC/laptop is assembled in factory and delivered to customer in full package with default hardware configuration.

Recently: Customer can choose different spare parts and build their own configuration to their PC/laptop. Assembly process can be done by supplier or themselves to have a specific hardware configuration.

3. Customers can build their own system even they are not an engineer or an expert in electronic or software/firmware fields. Customers can still design their final product with all features they had wished without professional knowledge in the area:

Hardware: What is inside the box is not important! Customers can build a system with set function or feature they ever wanted.

Software/firmware: Bringing a solution for normal customers who do not have knowledge in programming or software. Customers can use human language to communicate with machine, and build their own program for their equipment!

The progression: Only an expert can make the product => Engineer => Hobbies who have knowledge in electrical design à ANYONE without knowledge on electrical (This project will bring Human closer to expert on electrical. A new way to approach technology, which matches the recent trends)

 

Internet of Everything:

“Internet of Everything (IoE) — a network of networks where billions of connections create unprecedented opportunities as well as new risks.

Cisco believes IoE brings together people, process, data, and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before — turning information into actions that create new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented economic opportunity for businesses, individuals, and countries.” (From Cisco)

Knowing Renesas Vietnam (RVC) management team in the HCMUS – RENESAS Micom Car Rally 2007 (MCR2007) when I was still a Consultant for the ROBOTVIET club.
Talking with Mr. Hara (President and CEO) was the good chance to know the working style of RVC, and also his plan to open the MCR in other universities.
I infact have no connection with him and RVC after that contest, however, I believe that we can co-operate in the future project, when having chance. I was very impressed with the enthusiasm of the RVC top management.
