Research & Development

We help design the next generation of healthy and sustainable office buildings.

Research Background

Capitalizing on the advantages of natural plants and emerging IoT technologies (smart sensors, real-time database, and advanced data analytics), we provide IoT-based indoor greenery solutions as part of adaptation strategies to meet (and possibly exceed) the “new world” workplace standards of health and sustainability. In particular, our technology enables monitoring, analyzing, and controlling data-driven healthcare and sustainability measures to promote the quality of work environment as well as enhancing the operational efficiency of heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems.
