London
The internet of things holds out the promise of amazing new products, fresh business models and profound changes to our private and professional lives. But while there is an abundance of possibilities and creative ideas, software developers face tremendous challenges turning these visions into reality.Developers who haven’t previously dealt with embedded programming or telecommunications will soon realize that Arduino and Raspberry Pi are just the start, as they find themselves contemplating a complex ecosystem of hardware, protocols and software components. Meanwhile, software developers and architects who have some experience with hardware realize they have to quickly gain knowledge in other areas, such as networking/connectivity, security and data privacy.Building IoT London, is a three day conference that will help enterprise IT professionals to get a grip on and succeed in the internet of things, whether you’re taking your first steps into this world, or have laid the groundwork and are ready to exploit its full potential.Over two days of conference sessions and a day of in-depth workshops, we will range across the full gamut of topics. Presentations on key principles and the opportunity to talk about current research projects will help you to successfully approach and implement new projects in this exciting field.

Sustainable Infrastructure is an integral part of the smart cities mission. Driving a nation’s social and economic development, cities are the centre of resource consumption. Today, as people moving towards urban areas, cities are facing the pressure to accommodate the growing population. According to the United Nations (UN), the global urban population surpassed the global rural population in 2007, and it predicts that 70% of the world’s population will be urban by 2050, with many cities having more than 10 million inhabitants.As the cities expand, it is imperative to invest in smart buildings and housing to enable smart cities of the future. Smart buildings are intelligent structures that significantly save time, energy and operating cost, with the help of smart technology and materials. It is estimated that smart buildings will save up to 30 percent of water consumption, 40 percent of energy consumption, and reduce the overall building maintenance costs by 10 to 30 percent.Key aspects of Buildings India 2017 expoConnected homes• Homes around the world to become smarter and more connected in next five years• Connected homes give you total control on your house, with the ability to control elements in the home while you are away• Connected-home devices include all smart appliances (washers, dryers, refrigerators, etc.), safety and security systems (internet-connected sensors, monitors, cameras, and alarm systems), and energy equipment like smart thermostats and smart lighting• A PwC study estimates connected home market could be worth almost US$150 billion globally by 2020• With the growing proliferation of consumer electronics connected to internet, the Internet of Things (IoT) market is expected to reach US$ 15 billion by 2020 as per research firm IDCEnergy management• Cities account for 70 percent of the world’s energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions• Increase in price, availability of energy resources, and their environmental impact are some of the major concerns today• In the US alone, businesses spend about US$100 billion on energy for their offices every year• Commercial buildings could save up to $60 billion if investments in energy efficiency were ramped up by just 1-4%, according to a study by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE).• It is possible to convert these buildings into smart and energy efficient buildings by infusing sensors, actuators and CCTVs that sense and respond intelligently to the needs of the building occupants. Green buildings• More than 3,570 green building projects with a footprint of over 3.59 billion sq. ft. are registered with the Indian Green Building Council (IGBC), of which 789 green building projects are certified and functional• India’s green building footprint has emerged as the second largest in the world, and can go up to 10 billion sq. ft. by 2022• It is estimated that energy saving from green buildings is about 30 to 40 percent• The green building industry in India will grow by 20 percent in the next three years, increasing the scope of green building materials in the country• All types of buildings are going the green way: government, IT parks, offices, banks, residential, convention centres, airports, institutions, hotels, hospitals, factories, SEZs, townships, schools, metros, etc.Housing for all• The urban landscape of India is fast filling, and it is expected to reach 81 crore by 2050• According to the 2011 Census, there is a shortage of 18.78 million houses in the country• 'Housing for All by 2022' is a flagship project launched with the aim of building affordable homes for the urban poor and slum dwellers at low interest rates• Government of India plans to construct 29.5 million houses in rural areas under ‘Housing for All’ scheme• The Government will need to provide assistance for 10 million households by FY 2018-19 at an estimated cost of around US$ 12 billion out of which US$ 10 billion will be provided by budgetary allocation and the rest will come from borrowing through National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD)Real estate• The real estate sector holds prodigious strategic economic importance in the Indian economy• Real estate is the second largest employment generator in India after agriculture• The Indian real estate market is expected to touch US$ 180 billion by 2020.
