 Synopsis

Smart Technology  Technology is getting smarter – and smart systems are increasingly seen as the technological future. Smart Technology displays a level of in-built intelligence; technology that can analyse itself and provide important information back to the user

The applications are limitless as these two extremely diverse examples show. From the University of Plymouth comes a building that manages itself and encourages active interaction from its occupants, a building that's not just about throwing in technological solutions, but about getting people to think about how they use the space they work in.

And from the University of Bournemouth, also in the South West of England, there is a military training simulator that can accurately re-create the conditions of a real military offensive, providing the trainee with real expertise and skills from his training.

The future is smart!
