With a project for smart cities, a San Luis Potosi University graduate represents Mexico in Egypt


Jorge David Juárez Guel was invited to participate in the sixth International Conference “Future Smart Cities” in the city of Alexandria, for his work on home automation walls in houses.

The Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí (UASLP) announced that Jorge David Juárez Guel, a graduate of the Faculty of Habitat of the highest educational institution in the state, will travel to Egypt to present a project at the International Conference “Future Smart Cities”.His participation in the sixth congress to be held at the University of Barleti, Alexandria, Egypt, was due to a direct invitation from the organizers of the event after reading Juárez Guel’s article “The creation of spaces with home automation walls in the homes.”

“I was doing a project to improve homes and acquire better quality in smaller spaces, so from there came the idea of a wall that could have intelligent systems that we commonly see in videos and have greater comfort and technology, so why not integrate it into homes in San Luis Potosí,” explained Jorge David Juárez.In his research article, which comes from the thesis carried out by the graduate, he addresses issues about climate change, technology in cities, and contribution to society, through Domotic Walls in homes.

His project consists of “obtaining a unit with intelligent systems, made up of a wall with sensors for lighting, temperature, presence, energy management, and can have different activities.” The wall works through an application that transfers information from a database, created by the Potosino graduate, which allows the wall a certain independence to move, turn the light on or off, and change the temperature among other actions.

Jorge David Juárez Guel will raise the name of the country and San Luis Potosí since his project could be replicated in cities like Dubai or the Arab Emirates, where governments are betting on automation, counteracting climate change, and providing a better quality of life to citizens.

In the International Conference “Future Smart Cities” the participation of only two Mexicans is expected.
