Autani, LLC, a proven leader in building controls and IoT, has been selected as the official vendor for the lighting control system in LG Electronics' new sustainably-designed North American headquarters located in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.
When completed in 2019, the 350,000-square-foot LEED Gold corporate campus will feature Autani's Zigbee-based wirelessly networked lighting controls for outdoor lighting fixtures and indoor room, area and individual fixture controls that support daylight harvesting, switching, and dimming.
"In line with LG's focus on sustainability, Autani's IoT-enabled controls, coupled with LG's own industry-leading LED lighting systems, will help maximize energy efficiency each day," said Scott Metker, COO of Autani.
Autani's lighting controls will provide LG a premise-based solution with remote management capabilities that offers significant energy savings, optimized light levels, and the convenience of secure IoT integration through an LED mesh created using LG LED lighting troffers and down-lights with integrated Zigbee wireless technology.
The most important factor in the invention of products that add convenience to our lives is the need. The inventors, who think that a new solution is necessary, find new solutions for the problems and develop innovative products. The Ferraris brothers made our life easier with the inCharge they designed. I talked with Lorenzo Filiberto Ferraris about Ferraris Group Sagl and inCharge.
An architect does not need to design large-scale buildings or houses to show his or her creativity. Small size minimalist projects such as "Cabin on a Rock" can reflect its architects' perspectives with all the details. I talked to Isamu Kanda, the architect of this minimalist building, about his career and his projects.
Make a quick start, decide to right maneuvers at the right moment while sliding on a tiny sled in the ice tunnel, always try to be faster, and reach to the end of the track as soon as possible. This is the way I can define 'Skeleton' in a non-technical format. I had the chance to interview Janine Flock, 2015 Overall World Cup Winner Skeleton Athlete, about her career and the importance of individual sponsorship in winter sports.
Technology advances every day and adds new fun to our lives. VR headsets are one of the most important examples of this. Now, technology companies are developing tools to make everything more realistic and present their new products one by one. Beijing-based LUCI presents the World's First Immersion-on-Demand Personal Wearable.
We love to experience new cuisines and taste new dishes and delicacies. We like some of them and we want to eat it again, but we do not even prefer to taste some of them again. However, Italian cuisine has a special place, everyone loves Italian tastes. I talked to Chef Paolo Gallotti about his career and Vero Italian.
