The new digital solutions aim to share and visualize information comprehensively, contribute to a sustainable society, and improve people's quality of life. Specifically, they aim to improve the safety of buildings and occupants, increase convenience and energy efficiency, and reduce operational costs and buildings' impact on the environment. This will be accomplished through an infrastructure that enables the status of the building and occupants to be checked and managed remotely.
