Honeywell created what it called the “intelligent system” for the National Stadium in Beijing, China, turning the venue for the opening and closing events at the 2008 Summer Olympics into a “smart building.” Designed by highly controversial artist Ai Weiwei, the “Bird’s Nest” remains one of the most impressive feats of stadium architecture in the world. The 250,000 square meter structure housed more than 100,000 athletes and spectators at a time. To accommodate such capacity, China turned to Honeywell’s EBI Integrated Building Management System to create an integrated “intelligent system” for improved building security, safety and energy efficiency.

Honeywell used its EBI Integrated Building Management System to integrate the building’s automation system; the fire alarm and fighting interlock control system; and the security automation system with distributive database technology. It also integrated the office automation system, the ticket management system and public address system with OPC technology to improve spectator management. The stadium itself features built-in rainwater recycling, cooling heat pumps with underwater source and an energy management strategy. Honeywell helped the effort by providing an automation system designed to integrate and control the various equipment and devices that affect comfort levels or consume vast amounts of energy. They looked at three main areas for controlling energy use: Air quality: Air handling units, fresh air units, and air supply and exhaust systems. Drainage: Water supply and drainage systems which monitor the rain flood control systems, the outdoor waterscape systems and the reclaimed water systems. Power Generation: Power supply for illumination systems and the elevator systems, the cold and heat source systems such as chillers, heat exchangers and ground source heat pumps. The building automation system includes three central management stations designed to streamline data from more than 7,500 controlled points and uses 82 direct digital controllers, 769 sensors, 37 water valves and 106 air dampers. The National Stadium’s fire alarm and interlock control system consists of an integrated central management station, 13 fire alarm controllers, 3,232 smoke detectors, 231 thermal sensors, 564 manual alarm buttons, 1,629 control modules, 2,559 single-input monitor modules and 187 double-input monitor modules. The security solution from Honeywell integrated the video surveillance and control system, the access control system, the intruder alarm system, the guard tour system, the park management system and the integrated security control system. To help streamline the influx of 90,000-plus spectators, Honeywell installed its Temaline authentication systems as well as use an electronic ticketing system in the turnstiles and security checks so individuals could be tracked from the point of entry. More than 200 analogue, Honeywell-manufactured security cameras were integrated with the company’s Digital Video Manager. The Honeywell-designed security automation solution also covers six security subsystems including a digital video surveillance system connecting more than 800 cameras, a Nexwatch access control system with more than 162 readers, a large intrusion detection system, a car parking management system covering more than 800 parking spaces and a connected tour guard system.

More "Green" Asset - The building automation system integrates and controls the various equipment and devices that affect comfort levels or consume vast amounts of energy.

Better User Experience - Technology enabled a more transparent and traceable user identification system so that the access control could segment staff, VIPs and general visitors against a predefined database.

Safer – The intelligent, integrated system included the use of personalized tickets and face-identification systems customized for the Olympics and Paralympics Games.

Sensors transform energy into electrical data; they are the eyes and ears of IoT. Actuators transform electrical data into energy; they are the muscle of IoT.
IoT power supplies include traditional, thin-film and printed batteries, energy harvesting modules, flexible photovoltaic panels and thermoelectric sources.
Technologies that enable legacy devices and other systems to connect to the IoT. They integrate technologies and protocols for networking.
Products used by end users that contain IoT technologies. Examples include enabled equipment, wearables, hand-held scanners, and tracking devices.
Horizontal applications are standardized (e.g., asset tracking). Vertical applications are tailored to specific needs (e.g., delivery fleet management).
APIs are the market enabler for IoT. They allow users to manage devices, enable data transfer between software, and provide access capabilities.
IoT analytics includes real-time or edge computing and batch analysis. Analytics can be behavioral, descriptive, predictive, or prescriptive.
Visualization solutions use dashboards, alerts, events, maps, and other tools to present easily comprehensible data to end users.
Security software provides encryption, access control, and identity protection to IoT solutions from data collection through end-user applications.
System integrators link IoT component subsystems, customize solutions, and ensure that IoT systems communicate with existing operational systems.
IoT data management consultancies help to make sense of big data, decide which data to maintain and for how long, and troubleshoot IT issues.
IoT hardware consultancies provide services such as solution specification, product design, connectivity setup, and partner identification.
IoT software consultancies support the development of data analytics, visualization solutions, and platforms, as well as integration into embedded systems.
