CABA Releases Intelligent Buildings Roadmap
The Continental Automated Buildings Association recently released its new Intelligent Buildings Roadmap. The Roadmap is a collaborative industry-funded research project designed to update CABA's Technology Roadmap (TRM) for Intelligent Buildings, a research report released in 2002.
The Roadmap's primary objective is to identify strategies for developing intelligent buildings that have the greatest potential to drive broad acceptance. The report examines the challenges facing intelligent building implementation within North America and identifies the market developments and industry initiatives needed to support the wider adoption of these technologies.
The report, authored by Building Intelligence Group LLC, employs qualitative market research including focus groups, interviews, and trend analysis to conclude that a series of barriers inhibit industry growth. The report recommends a complete strategy to remove these barriers, and surveys the sentiments of industry stakeholders.
Organizations that funded the Intelligent Buildings Roadmap include Cisco Systems, Direct Energy, ESC Automation/Delta Controls, Johnson Controls, HID Corporation, Honeywell International, Tridium, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratories, Legrand North America, Lutron Electronics Co., Inc., Panduit Corp., Siemens Building Technologies, TAC, Trane, and InfoComm International.
The report will be released on August 1, 2007 and is available for pre-order. For more information about the report, including the report's executive summary, please go to: www.caba.org/ibrm.
