Abstract Text:

Head to one of Chicago’s growing south side neighborhoods to visit state-of-the-art facilities built on an Internet of Things architecture. The Robert W Galvin Center for Electricity Innovation was designed to house microgrid research and education activities for Illinois Institute of Technology. Visit a Federal facility, the JCK Federal Building, to learn about how the GSA reduces energy use while accommodating space requirements. The L.I.F.E. project was able to reduce their footprint by 25% by incorporating new office design standards. The GSA Proving Ground has an intelligent Lighting Control System which consists of a network of LED lights and sensors to reduce energy use. Learn about the Internet of Things, the history of the university and the federal center, and view historical architecture and monuments.
