ARM turns Cambridge headquarters into IoT hub

Following an £800,000 cash injection from the TSB, ARM has set about transforming its UK headquarters into a hub for its partners' Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

AlertMe, EnLight and will collectively be deploying network technology and more than 600 connected sensors across the company's premises in Cambridge, with the aim of achieving a tangible reduction in energy consumption.

AlertMe is providing smart solutions to detect occupancy of ARM's 40 meeting rooms, while EnLight is upgrading the firm's outdoor lighting in car parks and around building exteriors with an innovative lighting management solution.

Finally, is providing solutions to measure pressure and flow in the company's heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems, which will enable the tracking of real time maintenance needs, plus rates of water consumption and overall carbon performance.

Graham Budd, ARM's chief operating officer, said: "To create a smart efficient building you need a great many sensors distributed throughout the system, all sharing information to improve decision making. ARM technology and its ecosystem create the bedrock of this smart intelligence that will enable others to build unique services and applications to help the IoT flourish."
