Data Twins of Commercial Spaces integrates human behavior modeling with a building’s operations
iNESS 360 announced the addition of Data Twins of Commercial Spaces to Bentley Systems’ Powered by iTwin program. The new solution manages the use of commercial spaces by integrating human behavior modeling with a building’s operations.
By using the Bentley iTwin platform, iNESS will integrate the data and data models directly into the building’s architectural model and create a data twin of the day-cycle of the building.
“Imagine an internet where buildings are connected and talking,” said CEO Soner Haci. “In the future, anyone will be able to buy data from commercial buildings.”
This partnership solution joins the growing ecosystem of software developers that enable digital twin innovation through the iTwin platform. It is a great example of how digital twin technology can model human behavior with streaming data to optimize indoor space, energy usage, and operations.
Who is iNess 360?
iNESS is a behavioral occupancy analysis system for small-to-medium-sized commercial properties. It converts commercial spaces into data streaming sources to model human behavior and observes how indoor circumstances affect that behavior by integrating the iNESS system into the structure of the building.
The models and data that are created through the iNESS system are streamed into the data exchange platform where the data is sold to an ever-increasing number of vertical sectors such as marketing, consulting, smart city applications, and financial and insurance markets, so that building owners can monetize their data and, at the same time, optimize their operations and investments.
What is the Bentley iTwin platform?
The Bentley iTwin platform is an open, scalable cloud platform that enables development teams to build applications that create, visualize, and analyze digital twins of infrastructure assets. Through the platform, applications allow users to incorporate engineering data created by diverse design tools into a living digital twin, aligning it with reality modeling and other associated data without disrupting current tools or processes.
The platform also enables the visualization and tracking of all changes. The Bentley iTwin platform facilitates solutions to provide actionable insights for decision-makers across the complete asset lifecycle.
