The vision of the Internet of Things is a seamless integration of diverse physical objects in the Internet through a virtual representation. In recent years, the target area of IoT constantly broadened from products within supply chains and nowadays encompasses all objects that are summarized under the label of ubiquitous and pervasive computing. Therefore also building automation devices are considered for an integration in the IoT, where they are for example used to realize a smart and…

This paper aims to initiate the discussion of creating a true Internet of Things, i.e., interconnected IoT networks, based on provision and requests of generated information in a public infrastructure, and highlights the challenges in designing this infrastructure for feasible integration in the current Internet and IoT designs.


Is IP everywhere the way ahead for building automation
Conventional wisdom suggests that the complete integration of building automation systems is the final outcome in the evolution of intelligent buildings. Security systems, energy management systems,
Communication systems for building automation and control
The task of building automation and the systems and communications infrastructure necessary to address it is introduced and an overview of relevant standards is given, including BACnet, LonWorks and EIB/KNX as open systems of key significance in the building automation domain.
Internet 0: Interdevice Internetworking - End-to-End Modulation for Embedded Networks
The Internet may be the most complex system ever engineered; from the first host in 1969, it's grown to comprise more than 1 billion routable host addresses, and all are encountering many of the same issues that the Internet faced as it grew, including inadequate address space, the need for naming and routing across networks, and mutual incompatibility.
Centralized control type monitoring system of electricity meter based on BACnet (a data communication protocol for building automation and control networks)
The invention provides the fieldbus type network monitoring system of the electricity meter based on BACnet, which is characterized in that each BACnets dispersible programmable microprocessor has a random-access memory (RAM) data memory unit which stores a dynamic private key corresponding to an address.
Open Automated Demand Response Communications Specification (Version 1.0)
The intention of the open automated demand response communications data model is to provide interoperable signals to building and industrial control systems that are preprogrammed to take action based on a demand response signal, enabling ademand response event to be fully automated, with no manual intervention.
DDC and the Web
What the future likely holds in terms of technology to improve building operation even further by the use of wireless technology, hand held devices, and other technologies emerging from the fields of information technology and communications is looked at.
