The OpenBlue Innovation Centre, located within the School of Design and Environment, will be a living lab for solutions that bridge core building tech with behavioural, wellness and spatial data.
The centre spans 240 sqm, and will be fitted with sensors, including overhead ventilation to measure air flow and furniture that tracks occupants’ alertness level.
Engineers from the centre and collaborating NUS researches will collect and analyse data using Johnson Controls’ OpenBlue platform, leveraging AI and analytics to understand how tech, indoor environments and occupants well-being are connected. The partners — NUS, Microsoft and Johnson Controls — will then tap on the insights to create solutions for healthier, safer, and connected indoor spaces.
In 2008, Johnson Controls was appointed to implement a converged campus building management solution for NUS University Town (UTown), which achieved the Green Mark District Award in 2010. Under such a solution, the campus was able to achieve energy savings of 20 percent.
The innovation centre is expected to house more than 100 employees within four years, with a focus on talent development at NUS in both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
