Keys to how technology is changin

g our path. Construction and Technology:

The impact of technology on the way we will live in the future, as long as we can have a future as such.

How did we get here. That The rules that govern the evolution of technology, in our housing, health, life in cities, education, banking, insurance, shopping, privacy, work, tourism, politics.

 The future will be the one we indicate now. Technology increasingly has an impact on our daily lives. This is all to do, we are only beginning, to build to innovate, if it is true we already have the tools that can facilitate actions that constitute a giant step for humanity.

 Smart Construction .:

From the innovation in Design, Architecture and engineering of smart buildings includes: BIM, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Digital Twins, SRI,

Paper has been without a doubt the best tool for an architect so far, with programs like AEC Colection, 3DS Max, autocad. Or sense VR the architectural studios have changed the presentation of projects. To take an example, the US-based WHA Architerure technology enables its clients to visualize the project before it is built, thereby facilitating work, because virtual representation allows them to find and correct problems before the project is built.

O For highlighting some of the technologies that have VR or AR, such as using the DAQRI Smart Helmet: a helmet that allows viewing projects and 3D models in augmented reality, experiencing it as an immersive and large-scale 3D environment.

Now I am going to focus on Technologies, Solutions and Systems for Intelligence in Buildings and construction in general: Home Automation, BIM, IoT, cybersecurity, electric vehicle, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Robotics, Cloud, etc.

It highlights the impetus our politicians to show the advanced city. The smart city appears as a great opportunity to efficiently manage the future of the city. New analytical models can play a key role in the urban sphere, helping to value information for strategic and operational decision-making, which translates into greater operational efficiency, cost reduction and better quality services.

 Home Automation and Robotics must be introduced as an essential tool for quality of life.

Home automation undoubtedly contributes to an improvement in the user's quality of life. A home automation system is capable of collecting information from sensors or inputs, processing it and issuing orders to actuators or outputs. The system can access external communication or information networks.

In the near future home automation will be implemented a large part of hotels, museums, office buildings. And the new construction of residential buildings. Easy access to tools like Google home or alexia will cause a whole new generation to not understand the daily routine without a home automation system at their fingertips.

Robotics is part of that of many construction companies. The application of an automated system in construction increases the productivity and quality of a work. In order to identify which level of automation is adequate in a construction, “it is necessary to differentiate between the construction of houses, with a low level of automation, and the great tunneling works, roads with a medium high level ”. The role of robotics in construction will be, on the one hand, to replace the human operator in carrying out dangerous tasks, and complement his work by automating different processes, providing increased capabilities, more strength, resistance and precision under control and planning. operator, getting a safe job and improving productivity and quality of processes. And From the part of our lives as I want to quote the introduction of robotics in tourism. Cases such as the presence of robots in hotels or in theme parks are already being seen, it is the future. The advancement in intelligent robot-person interaction through cases such as Pepper, an android devised by the Japanese Aldebaran Robotics and SoftBank Mobile that assists in the sale of Nespresso coffee machines and that recommends products, facially recognizes users and is " emotionally intelligent ”. That is the potential of the application of robots in tourist services aimed at people, I mean the need to be creative and figure out how the tourism sector is taking advantage of existing applications in its hotels, restaurants. theme parks and others. .


The trends or technological solutions applied to the market, the commitment to a groundbreaking user experience, in short, the impulse

Robotics in the tourism industry is a key pillar within the booming sector. So technological innovation is a catalyst for change on this path to smart and future tourism.

We meet at the Aloft Cupertino Hotel (California)

Can you imagine that you order breakfast and a robot brings it to you? Well, in eastern California it is possible. ALO Botlr is the robot butler that walks the halls of Aloft Cupertino, located in Silicon Valley. This robot is in charge of all the service and maintenance of the rooms, 24 hours a day. This robot butler, has a touch screen and is directly connected to social networks to share your experience with your friends, it also has a #meetbotlr hashtag to thank ALO Botlr for their services. It is one of the smart hotels that uses robotics as a key element.

It is difficult to summarize the technological innovations implemented or innovated in the period of the 4.0 revolution or the so-called connected industry 4.0

Concept of the fourth industrial revolution coined by Klaus Shawab founder of the World Economy Forum in 2016

The use of management and maintenance in smart buildings Use, Management and Maintenance in Smart Buildings: IoT, BIM, BMS, life cycle, Blockchain, Telecommuting, Coworking, without a doubt we realize more now than ever the great benefit of some of these tools we just have to see what telework has meant during these months of confinement. Impossible to measure the real impact it is having just six months ago.

The human being and his diversity in the intelligent building will have to understand each other a lot from the retail sector to the tourism sector. They must undertake a deep reflection on the future. Which will lead to strengthening comfort, ergonomics, safety and sustainability. Mainly.

Projects stand out in smart buildings. And Systems Integration. It occurs to me to stand out.

FlyZoo Hotel Hangzhou (China)

Hotel located in Hangzhou and built by Alibaba is partially automated with artificial intelligence and robots. We say artificially, because there are staff working at the hotel. The check-in is done automatically with a facial recognition, the same when a check-out is performed. This facial recognition also serves to open the door of your room. Inside the room everything works with a smart speaker that allows you to control all the elements, including some of them, the temperature and the lights. If the guest needs anything, they just have to say it out loud and a robot goes up to the door to bring it to you.

Tetra Hotel (to be determined) PROJECT FOR THE FUTURE.

A concept still in development, Tetra Hotel cannot be compared to any other accommodation. The engineers of WSP and the architects of Innovation Imperative are the creators of this modular structure hotel, backed by DIT Spain (Department for International Trade), and designed to enter remote areas and provide the greatest comfort accompanied by the most advanced technology. Tetra Shed is a mosaic building system that they decided to develop as a garden office, given the rise of teleworking today. Each room will have a bedroom, bathroom, hall and even an office.

For me in no time there will be no newly built hotel that introduces home automation systems or smart speakers in its infrastructure.

We see how Intelligent Shopping Centers adapt to the tastes of each consumer.

With new technologies, “shopping” will no longer be a pilgrimage from store to store to see which products are the ones that capture our attention. We will see how it will be implemented in shopping centers in a few years, an application for the mobile or tablet will be available that will send notifications to the user with catalogs and personalized offers tailored to the taste of each consumer.

 The shopping center that has this technology, will have interactive screens that will recommend specific offers and products that will be adapted to the tastes of each of the customers who are looking at that screen at the time. This is possible because the application is capable of intelligently segmenting the contents according to the information that is registered in each profile: those products that are consulted, what is finally purchased.
