New platform aims to ensure smart buildings help to make smart cities

Fujitsu RunMyProcess is demonstrating a version of its smart building integration platform that in future could be integrated into the wider smart city digital environment.

Fujitsu RunMyProcess is demonstrating a minimum viable product (MVP) release of a smart building integration on the Berlin Innovation Agency (BIA) Smart City Hub online meeting later today (28 April 2020).

 

The RunMyBuilding service portal sets out to enable facility managers to view, book, and manage all physical and digital services across a building or campus. The aim is to add further capability and integrate it into the wider smart city digital environment.

 

Physical and online capabilities

 

In a statement, Fujitsu highlights that smart cities and smart buildings require an ever-increasing set of services, many of which are combinations of physical services with online capabilities. At the same time, professional city and building managers are increasingly looking for solutions to help manage all these services in a convenient, consistent and cost-effective way.

 

RunMyBuilding offers additional functionality for tenants via the mobile device interface of RunMyApp, available in IOS and Android app stores. It also provides the integration backbone for added-value workflows, combining two- or more digital services.

“Making the buildings that comprise our cities smarter is clearly a fundamental building block for the way forward.”

Fujitsu RunMyProcess has been working with the BIA and its ecosystem of partners to develop a fully functional service portal demonstrator. For the initial demonstrator implementation, RunMyProcess selected two service offerings based on early-phase feedback from target user interviews:

  • Leaftech: advice for building users on how to optimise indoor room conditions in the most efficient and comfortable way. Energy balance is constantly predicted for the hours ahead based on user schedules, 3D city models and weather forecast data
  • Comydo: software-generated QR keys allow temporary or ad-hoc access management to rooms and buildings from an online calendar using a smart IoT device – simplifying building management tasks such as service team access control or temporary room sub-rental.

“Smart cities are no longer a future vision – they are emerging all around us in many practical ways that improve services, wellbeing and the environment. Making the buildings that comprise our cities smarter is clearly a fundamental building block for the way forward,” said Hirofumi Ukita, director, and head of Fujitsu Accelerator.

 

“With technology from Fujitsu RunMyProcess, we are making this possible by adding a powerful digital integration platform to our open innovation programme with start-ups – within a value-added cooperation across the Berlin Innovation Agency community.”
