A workshop on Future-Ready Smart Technologies for Power Distribution in a Building Nexus was conducted on Nov 24th, 2022. The main objective of the workshop was to showcase commercially viable SinBerBEST technologies in the broad area of ‘Grid Interactive Buildings’ which are ready for translation. The workshop also consists of two presentations from relevant industries on the importance of smart emerging technologies for power distribution in Grid-Interactive Buildings. Video
The SinBerBEST Annual Symposium took place on Wednesday, the 20th of July, 2022 (SGT). The theme of the Symposium was Technology Transfer and Market Adoption as it relates to building technologies. SinBerBEST Principal Investigators presented their research achievements in Indoor Air Quality, Thermal Comfort, Predictive Building Energy Simulations, and Data Analytics.
Congratulations to Dr. Sanjib Kumar Panda who has been elevated to IEEE Fellow for contributions to iterative learning control of motor drives.
SinBerBEST Principal Investigators and Postdoctoral Scholars have been granted a patent for creating a process for forming an antenna structure and for embedding an antenna system in concrete. In 2016, Prof. Boon Hee Soong, Prof. Paulo Monteiro, Dr. Vanessa Reinheimer, and Dr. Yee Loon Soong, filed this patent application in order enhance the concrete structure's energy harvesting capabilities for embedded Internet of Things (IoT) applications, but to also significantly improve the overall performance of wireless technologies within buildings. Congratulations!
