The Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA) said today it has secured 13 major sponsors for its Intelligent Buildings Roadmap.

The document will be a collaborative industry-funded research project designed to update CABA’s Technology Roadmap (TRM) for IntelligentBuildings, a research report released in 2002.

Organizations funding it include Cisco Systems, Direct Energy, Honeywell International, Legrand North America, Panduit Corp., Siemens Building Technologies, Trane and InfoComm International.

“Through the roadmap process, companies in a given sector can pool their resources to determine what their specific market will require for growth,”said Ronald Zimmer, president & CEO of CABA.

“Our aim is to develop a solid portrait of the state of the integrated systems industry and a clear vision of where we are headed.”

The goal is to produce a report that explores and explains the current status and imminent opportunities offered by the accelerating evolution and usage of intelligent building technologies.

The Roadmap’s sponsors will determine the specific research direction of the project through participation on a special steering committee.
