A new paradigm is created in the ICT enabled managed energy services solutions for buildings and infrastructure through the use of virtual software technology. Pacific Controls has entered this new realm of building automation management to develop advanced software for a virtualized automation control process.
The team of specialists from Pacific Controls and Vienna University of Technology will be working on developing “robots” for the software system – intelligent controls that respond to alarm and maintenance messages without human intervention, making the building control process even easier and faster.
The expert group from the Vienna University of Technology will review the design and development strategy and conduct scientific research in the field of virtual software services solutions.
One major focus of the company’s building automation system was energy control, an important part in managing a building’s energy consumption. Pacific Controls’ advances in virtualized automation controls process could help to reduce a building’s energy costs by up to 50 percent.
