Smart Buildings Challenge

START-UP POWER FOR SMART REAL ESTATE

As part of the "Smart Buildings Challenge" organized jointly with the Bosch technology group and its partners Microsoft, TÜV Süd and Deka Immobilien, we are implementing four innovative solutions for smart buildings with selected tech start-ups


THE PROJECT
 

As part of a "Smart Buildings Challenge" carried out with the technology group Bosch and its partners Microsoft, TÜV Süd and Deka Immobilien, ECE will implement and test in practice a total of four innovative solutions for smart buildings with selected tech start-ups by the beginning of 2021.  

The four start-ups were selected from a total of 26 participants in the Smart Buildings Challenge and were presented in February 2020 in Berlin at "Bosch Connected World", one of the leading conferences on digital transformation and the "Internet of Things", as the winners of the Challenge launched last summer.

In close cooperation with the operational ECE project teams, the winners are now in the process of implementing the concepts in the next step in the Ettlinger Tor shopping center operated by ECE in Karlsruhe and subjecting them to a practical test.

In order to implement the project successfully, the digital unit "ECE NEXT", in which the project management is operationally based, works closely with all involved stakeholders. These include not only the challenge partners and winning companies, but in particular the internal ECE units, which play a key role in the success of the overall project. Other key stakeholders include local Center Management, Corporate IT and Facility Management.

FOUR INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR SMART BUILDINGS

SMART SPACE FLOW ANALYTICS

For the topic "Smart Space Flow Analytics", the Spanish start-up Cubelizer will use a sensor network based on Artificial Intelligence (AI) to measure the routes taken by customers in the mall, taking into account data protection requirements, map them in real-time mode and prepare them for analysis.

SMART METERING SYSTEM

The start-up company "Aedifion", which was founded in 2018, develops solutions for the cloud-based operation and optimization of building automation systems and will install a "smart metering system" for the automated reading, analysis and optimization of energy consumption in the Ettlinger Tor.

Smart Automated Building

With the "Smart Automated Building" approach from "Thing Technologies", the heating, cooling and ventilation technology is to be controlled and analyzed on the basis of the other two installed tools, and thus measures to increase efficiency are to be proposed.

Smart Building Cockpit

 Finally, a "Holisticon" project team will set up a "Smart Building Cockpit", a central dashboard for building data, which will present the collected information visually, target and user group oriented, thus creating the basis for comprehensive analyses of energy consumption.
