Autonomous buildings aim for a higher level of automation than smart buildings, optimizing environmental impact, enhancing comfort, and increasing security.
Smart buildings seek to automate many operational aspects of running a building. Efforts typically focus on heating/cooling and energy use. But work has greatly expanded to other areas. For example, smart lobbies and smart elevators are gaining great interest. Autonomous buildings aim to take things to a higher level to reduce the costs of maintaining a building, optimizing the structure’s environmental impact, enhancing the occupants’ comfort, and increasing security.
