Smart Interactive Buildings [SIBs]: The use of Ambient Intelligent Systems [AMIS] to enable Smart Interactive Settlements [SISs]
MetadataShow full item record
The 21st Century is witnessing the dawn of Industry [I4.0], or the fourth Industrial Revolution. With burgeoning technological inventions linked to smart interactive cities and intelligent buildings, where humans-machines-spaces interact continuously. Our ambition in this explorative study is to design and develop a sophisticated interactive computational platform that interacts and responds to humans' [users] needs and aspirations, which are increasing exponentially, in complete synchronization with machines, spaces and buildings' capacities. Consequently, there is a demand and necessity to develop Ambient Intelligent Systems (AMIS) which enable the creation of intelligent settlements that efficiently ease the communication between users/ users, users/machines and users/buildings. This is importantly needed in order to reduce the ascending consumption rate of energy in an integrative design manner. The aim of this study is to investigate the current technological solutions that address the subject of human/buildings [includes machines and spaces] interaction through sensory devices and computational systems. This can be achieved through the design and development of a comprehensive understanding of the human/buildings interactions, in the form of Ambient Intelligent Systems that enable the interaction of different stakeholders and users with the building they live/work in, at realtime. This will solve any problem related to energy usage and hence environmental quality control indoor-outdoor of the building. The findings of this study demonstrate the necessity of integrating AMIS solutions into the early stages of buildings design as a primary method of Design, Build and Operation (DBO). Earlier computational design technologies would help develop an Advanced Design, Analysis and Management System (ADAMS). This system has been simulated and validated effectively to enable human-buildings constant interactivity at all time in real-time reaction. AMIS solutions through ADAMS model lead us as designers, architects, planners and users to consider our buildings as an interactive living entity rather than a static conventional mass. Humans-Buildings-Spaces interaction through AMIS platforms will be capable of collecting, analyzing, synthesizing and developing adequate customized decisions at their own, as Artificially Intelligent [AI] constituents of the Smart Interactive Buildings [SIBs] network, which would undoubtedly lead to reduced energy consumption and healthier livable Smart Interactive Settlements [SISs].
