New ‘Smart Building’ Collaboration Formed
As part of the collaboration, UTC and MIT will create a research facility for smart building innovation when the MIT Media Lab undergoes expansion, according to UTC. The project will involve construction of a second, larger building that is scheduled to open in 2004 and will be equipped with Web-enabled UTC products to create a testbed for prototype development.
Resulting innovations will be integrated into the building as it evolves into a demonstration showcase for smart technology.
