The Internet of buildings
Do you talk to your home? And more importantly, does it listen? Just a decade ago, these questions would have seemed absurd. Today, they reflect reality in millions of households around the world, as the Internet of Things expands into – and enables – a new generation of smart, connected buildings.
In this 7th edition of the u-blox magazine, we examine how connectivity is transforming our homes, our workplaces, and the other buildings we inhabit, as well as the business opportunities that these new technologies create. Also, according to The Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction, in partnership with UN Environment, buildings are responsible for 40% of our CO2 emissions.
That’s why they need to be front and center in our efforts to reduce our environmental impact. It’s a sector that plays to our strengths at u-blox, as providers of wireless communication and positioning technologies – key enablers of connected building solutions.
