Identification

Builddie is an intelligent energy management system that uses state-of-the-art smart technologies (sensors, actuators, controllers etc.) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities for optimal energy management of buildings.

Aktepus monitors and controls HVAC, lighting, and other systems by integrating information obtained from sensors on a range of outdoor environmental (temperature, humidity), indoor environmental (temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide), and equipment sensors to reduce energy use. The vision and capabilities of Aktepus exceed traditional smart home technologies through the use of the Artificial Intelligence paradigm. The various components of the overall technology include a sensory infrastructure to track energy consumption and environmental data, an AI data analytics engine to process sensory data and develop energy efficiency strategies, an actuation infrastructure to control devices and execute energy strategies, and a user interaction framework to communicate with the consumer. To meet the challenge of bandwidth constraints, Aktepus developed advanced computing hardware that performs comprehensive and compact data extraction on the same hardware that hosts data transmission services and then transmits only selective data to a low-bandwidth remote server.
