Intelligent building based on Internet of Things technology such as RFID

Considering the current situation, people today are more demanding and impatient. They demand that everything be delivered in the shortest possible time, and their desire for comfort and convenience is increasing day by day. In order to meet people's needs, construction operators are looking for new ways to adjust priorities to obtain customer satisfaction.

Because of modern technology, meeting people ’s needs is no longer a problem. All you need is how to use modern technology properly. The construction industry draws inspiration from the concepts of smart cities and smart homes and is trying to build interconnected digital buildings. Similarly, the concept of smart buildings is to provide comfort, convenience, safety and efficiency. So, what is a smart building?

Intelligent building: meaning

Use digital technology to automate, simplify and improve the structure of the building's internal operations. Simply put, smart buildings are nothing more than transforming buildings by interacting with the cloud. The infrastructure uses RFID sensors, cameras, and actuators to improve the reliability of the structure. When an emergency occurs, the building will be analyzed and responded accordingly.

Most buildings today have deployed surveillance cameras, fire sensors, LED lighting, etc. However, through the Internet of Things, buildings can share comprehensive data and help building owners gain meaningful insights, thereby improving tenant (tenant) experience and increasing return on investment.

Smart buildings: benefits

Because intelligent buildings are centered on various technologies, they are no longer regarded as "four walls and roof". They should actually be called "automated machines". By simply touching the smartphone, you can get information on available parking spaces; or, if there is any technical failure in the elevator, a message will be automatically sent to the maintenance staff. The opportunities are endless, let's take a look at the specific benefits of smart buildings.

· Efficiency-RFID sensors embedded in every corner of the building will collect comprehensive data on construction work, and building operators will obtain real-time information on the state of structural activity Real-time analysis of over-used and under-used areas in the infrastructure will facilitate seamless management of space utilization.

· Predictive maintenance-In the life cycle of any structure, the maintenance of the building consumes most of the budget. However, the introduction of IoT sensors will help building operators to collect subtle data so as to provide accurate insights into technical failures (if any). The insights derived from the collected data can help structural inspectors analyze problems in real time, carry out the services required for building maintenance in a timely manner, and greatly reduce maintenance costs.

Energy consumption-Buildings with smart meters, smart grids, automatic lighting control, temperature control, and other energy management systems will help reduce energy consumption to a minimum. In addition to energy saving, smart buildings will also help save money.

· Building cleaning optimization—With the help of sensors that collect data in clean and unclean spaces, building managers can automate the cleaning process. Such a function helps keep the building clean and free from disease.

Intelligent Building: Scene

Smart school-School classrooms should provide a safe and comfortable environment for teachers and students. There is no doubt that making the classroom more comfortable will improve the experience, efficiency and performance of students and teachers. By deploying IoT RFID sensors, smart gateways, people counters, actuators, cameras, smart meters, and solar panels, schools can build a “smart” building, which improves visibility, safety, and management capabilities while saving money New opportunities. Schools can:

· Pay attention to temperature changes,

· Check whether the lighting is insufficient,

· Enhance student safety,

· Reduce energy consumption, and

· Monitor water resources management.

Smart workplace-In the office, there will always be an employee sitting in one corner, wearing a thick jacket to keep warm, while in the other corner, there may be employees sweating. Office temperature depends on many factors, including the number of employees, sunlight and humidity. The existing air-conditioning system is out of sync with employee preferences. However, in smart buildings, by combining employee preferences, data collected by current HVAC systems, and machine learning functions, building managers will obtain temperature-optimized information based on employee comfort. Employees can also control the temperature by installing applications on their smartphones. We will see a higher level of transparency, and employees can freely control the temperature in the workplace. In addition, smart parking systems, visitor management systems, energy metering, simplified cleaning, smart waste management, and thermal comfort will create a comprehensive smart environment in the workplace, thereby improving employee health, productivity, safety, concentration, and work effectiveness. The survey showed that "improving the air-conditioning system will increase the productivity of employees by 11%, and better lighting will increase the efficiency by 23%." Therefore, developing smart workplaces will increase employee engagement.

Smart hospitals—Providing better medical facilities, comfort, care and safety for patients is an inescapable responsibility of hospitals. However, the Internet of Things, advanced technology, and automation provide new opportunities for hospitals to improve hospital connectivity while meeting patient expectations. Automatically turn off the lights when not needed, control the room temperature according to the patient's requirements, send information about cleaning the ward, notify the technical team of medical equipment failures, monitor the usage of each room, etc. These benefits, plus energy-saving, reliable building layout Infrastructure optimization will make the hospital more intelligent, sustainable and full of vitality. Most importantly, the smart hospital will create an optimal environment for patients to feel more comfortable, just like at home.
