IoT empowered Smart Buildings elevate the user experience and bring excellence in operations, transforming business performance and enhance sustainability
IoT is playing a critical role in the management of buildings and its infrastructure, providing real-time actionable insights. Data from IoT devices are being leveraged to provide users and stakeholders with sharper insight and granular control over multiple areas of operations and user experience, creating a safe and healthy environment. IoT-based systems help to simplify maintenance, reduce operational costs, derive high visibility to assets, thus providing higher return on investment (ROI).
Wipro Smart Building is an Intel® IoT market-ready solution powered by Wipro’s Intellectual property Wipro Smart i-Connect™ (WSiC), an enterprise IoT platform. WSiC acquires, interprets, routes, processes, and visualizes data from the IoT devices to make Smart Building a central component in facility control. Intel is enabling a more intelligent Internet of Things (IoT), supporting enterprises that are moving to the edge so they can capture more data, analyze it faster, and act on it sooner.
The solution uses Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit to accelerate deep learning inference. The free, downloadable toolkit helps developers and data scientists fast-track development of high-performance computer vision and deep learning into vision applications. With the help of Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ toolkit, Wipro Smart i-Connect™ improves model’s performance, optimized runtime and maximized application’s throughput on Intel’s hardware platforms.
Wipro Smart Building solution monitors, analyzes and manages the operational systems in a building. It uses vendor-agnostic technology and open-source interfaces based on IT/OT standards that are extremely well-suited for controlling intelligent building systems. Working as a central component of a facility control center, it provides the centralized monitoring and management for HVAC, lighting, access control and other operation systems and network infrastructure. The IoT gateway at the edge based on Intel® Core™ processors aggregates data and events, analytics and AI functionalities at the edge. Intel® processors come in a range of options for compute performance and power consumption, bringing AI closer to the edge thereby reducing latency, improving reliability and performance.
Smart Building solution provide many benefits:
- Excellence in operations by optimizing the use of space, energy, and resources, thereby reducing the cost of operations. For example, space utilization heat maps using vision analytics and environment sensors can be analyzed at the edge to drive better control of HVAC system and building management recommendations.
- Transform user experience by providing stakeholders with simple and intuitive interfaces to interact with data, based on user preferences.
- Towards sustainability by increasing the life cycle of assets: equipment that automatically turns off when not in use, for example lights, IT assets and HVAC systems, has a longer lifetime than that is powered on continuously.
- Business performance improvement by obtaining insight through AI and Analytics for better resource management and streamlined business processes.
