Webinar: From Smart Building to Smart City
Date: Tuesday, March 19, 2013
Time: 12 PM ET (9 AM PT)
Linking buildings to a smart grid for energy management may be the starting place that quickly expands to include smart transportation systems, waste management, logistics systems, emergency services, and other vital organs of the urban environment. The cloud services that enable this model allow management and analytics to create a smart city, one capable of meeting the needs of its residents better than ever before, in a way that sustains resources and optimizes costs.
In this Webinar, speakers from Smart Buildings LLC, New York-Presbyterian Hospital, and IBM will explain how smart buildings become smart cities. Attendees will learn:
- The basic characteristics and functions of smart buildings
- How these facilities are interconnected
- What kinds of urban systems can be included in such a network
- How the cloud model can create a smart, sustainable, and self-regulating city from the foundation of smart buildings.
