In keeping with the theme of the conference, keynote presentations were focused on emerging technologies.
  BACnet in Japan- IEIEJ, BACnet/SC, and More…
The Buildings-IoT ecosystem is focused on creating robust, connected and secure building infrastructure. Mr. Hiroshi Ito (Adviser, Technology Development, Azbil) introduced IEIEJ, the Japanese version of BACnet standards. He also shared his thoughts on security aspects in BACnet (BACnet/SC), BACnet/IPv6 and IoT development possibilities based on BACnet.
  Buildings IoT (B-IoT)- Innovation to make buildings smarter and more intelligent
IoT, Cloud and AI will be key driving forces in laying the foundation for buildings in the future. Mrs. Deepti Shete (Head, Technology Practice and CoE, Softdel) gave the audience a glimpse of the future of B-IoT. She elaborated on key IoT use cases, adoption, overall B-IoT ecosystem, challenges and the readiness of BACnet for B-IoT.
  Lighting IoT (L-IoT)- Beyond light, to LiFi and more
According to Gartner research, Smart Lighting has the potential to reduce energy costs by ninety percent. Mr. Umesh Suryawanshi (Director Technology, Softdel), described the evolution of lighting, sharing energy savings facts, details of adoption across industries and emerging trends in the lighting space, including Li-Fi, Bluetooth-mesh and so on.
  An Insightful Event
