Johnson Controls, global multi-industrial leader in providing energy efficiency and sustainability solutions, is taking unique advantage of Microsoft Surface technology to display and assess its energy-efficient solutions for commercial buildings. Johnson Controls is using Surface, Microsoft’s massive multitouch computer that responds to natural hand gestures and real-world objects, to display customized applications that show key data and information from its industry-leading Metasys building management system and enterprise information solutions. Both systems gather information from one or multiple buildings to gain visibility to improve energy efficiency and operations. With its massive multitouch, multiuser functionality, Surface offers Johnson Controls a unique way to access and interact with scale graphs, pictures, video and other related information more effectively. In addition, the large horizontal form factor allows for a more collaborative experience among multiple users.
