Digital technology and smart buildings are key elements for achieving a carbon-neutral and sustainable green society by 2050. In particular, due to the development of digital technologies such as the Internet of Things, big data, and artificial intelligence, buildings are rapidly changing into smart spaces. In addition, cloud-based platform technology has made buildings into a single digital product and provides a better life through the connection between buildings and cities. Furthermore, digital twin and energy data analysis technology have made it possible to use buildings as an object in establishing national strategies for carbon neutrality. In other words, various digital technologies are suggesting directions for the scalability and development potential of future smart buildings for carbon neutrality.
At this point, the direction of future building is clear. However, although various intelligent technologies are being applied to buildings, the practical verification of advanced technologies and smart services is still required in the fields of building management, lighting, energy, facilities, fire safety and security. Therefore, the purpose of this Special Issue is to exchange various ideas related to digital innovation technology applicable to buildings from an environmental, social and technological viewpoint. We invite you to submit interdisciplinary experiments and theoretical research on digital technologies and smart buildings. Research may include, but is not limited to, theoretical and empirical research on the following subjects:
- Digital transformation for smart buildings;
- Sustainable service in buildings;
- The role of buildings for carbon neutrality;
- Digital technology for smart buildings;
- Cloud-based smart building platforms;
- Digital-twin applications for smart building service;
- Advanced building energy management systems;
- AI-based automation control systems and algorithms for buildings;
- Data analysis and prediction for smart buildings.
