"Always Available and Accountable Communications Platform," "Lighting and Color Integration," "Security Management," "System Application," and some state-of-the-art technologies and patents are all applied in the Intelligent Building, one of the research projects and also the focus in this press conference. And that completely enable us to see how incredible a building could meet entertainment, energy-saving, security management, and fast communication.
"Domestically, Taiwan Tech has the most architecture relevant patents and successful application cases, and that's why we would like to help on problem-solving, and also providing the most appropriate buildings and living space for Taiwan residents.
