Smart Buildings are at the forefront of the Industrial Internet of Things. But creating a smart building is an extremely complicated task, requiring the connecting of hundreds and possibly thousands of components, devices, systems, and interfaces. Many hardware vendors are offering smart building components (elevators, HVAC, lighting, security, power etc.) creating a confusing marketplace of devices, capabilities, and systems that do not communicate with one another. Using examples from our customer American Dream in East Rutherford, NJ, I will explain how Edge computing is being used to enhance customer service and manage all of their disparate building components to a create a truly smart building. American Dream is a large “mega mall” based in East Rutherford, NJ developed by the Triple Five Group, a family-run real estate conglomerate that also owns the Mall of Americas. The first phase of American Dream opened Oct 25th. American Dream is approximately 3 million square feet (45% retail and 55% entertainment) and projects 40 million visitors annually. The complex includes over 450 shops, services and amenities, complemented by the best in entertainment, food, art and culture. American Dream will also feature a distinct shopping environment dedicated to iconic luxury brands and younger, fashion-forward retail. ClearBlade is providing the IoT Platform and Edge software infrastructure to deliver a complete and personalized real-time experience application and enable multiple future applications for entertainment and building operations.
