Azbil Corporation announced that it will participate in an initiative to test new and innovative building automation solutions that can aid the development of smart cities at the Smart Urban Co-Innovation Lab in Singapore led by CapitaLand, one of Asia's largest diversified real estate groups.
The Smart Urban Co-Innovation Lab, Southeast Asia’s first industry-led lab focused on smart cities solutions was initiated by CapitaLand and opened on October 28, 2020 with support from the Singaporean government. The Lab brings together leaders across various industries to co-create and test innovations at CapitaLand’s 5G-enabled Singapore Science Park.
This initiative will leverage Azbil’s building automation capabilities with the Lab’s capability to bring together industry leaders for developing, testing, and integrating proof-of-concept technologies to enhance customer experience and comfort. Through the Lab, Azbil will explore possible collaborations with other participating companies to develop and manage projects requiring energy management solutions for the life cycle of buildings.
As part of this initiative, Azbil will install its pandemic-ready airflow control system in the Lab. The system can easily convert an office meeting room into a temporary “pandemic-ready room” to isolate anyone who is suspected of carrying an infectious disease, while waiting to be taken to medical facilities.
