Intelligent space management and guidance on the campus of Lahti UAS
Space use in buildings is being optimised, which means that space management, guidance and the utilisation of measurement data on buildings will be required increasingly. Lahti University of Applied Sciences is creating a system for campus space management, intelligent guidance and development of an open interface for measurement data on buildings.
What kind of problem is the project trying to solve?
Economic, ecological and social changes are visible in space use: buildings are renovated for new purposes and multiple use of spaces is increasing. Ecological efficiency, energy savings and direct economic benefits are sought through more efficient use of spaces.
Efficient use of space also raises the standard required of space management. The monitoring of reservations and facility use enables a high rate of space use. Digitalised property management and building automation also enable increased energy efficiency.
An electronic guidance system that functions seamlessly with space management plays a key role in the usability of the entire building. Enhancing digitalisation and technologies such as geographic information technologies or different intelligent technologies help in the creation well-working guidance. For example, sensors that recognise the user enable guidance that interacts with the user. Through property and space management, it is also possible to collect data for the optimisation of the different functionalities in the building.
Objective: creation of a pilot system for intelligent space management and guidance
The Open DigiCampus experimental project is aimed at creating a pilot system for the development of an open data interface for the property and space management, intelligent guidance and digital measurement data on buildings at the NiemiCampus of Lahti University of Applied Sciences. The system is based on the principles of sustainable development. The aim is also to make the results usable nationwide and internationally.
The first sub-target of the project is to test the space management of a property in the pilot system by using the ecosystem of the national Peppi consortium. Peppi is an open set of systems supporting processes related to teaching in education and training organisations by bringing the tasks of students, teachers and study administration under a single set of systems.
The second sub-target is to pilot a smart guidance system.
The third sub-target is to develop open-interface services by using the interfaces of the Peppi ecosystem. The intention is also to develop interoperable standardised interfaces for monitoring the data on the energy consumption of properties and information systems.
Users of the campus of Lahti UAS and those who work on the campus, other professionals responsible for property and space management.
