Listen in as some of the industry’s leading experts speak out on some of the critical building automation implementation issues. Panelists will discuss solutions for the design and construction professional on such topics as:

• BAS in airports, where gates are automatically lighted, heated/cooled depending on plane arrival/departure, and universities, where the BAS is tied into the class schedule program.
• XML (extensible mark-up language), the potential bridge that allows businesses, owners and manufacturers to suddenly open the doors to vast amounts of shared information.
• How XML allows Professional Engineers to add explicit information into their specification documents and bridge gaps that often occur between designer and builders.
• How the Professional Engineer can better understand the possibilities of XML to aid the building owner.
• How wireless technology is opening the doors for change and the implementation of intelligent building devices

Moderated by:
