Abstract

Radiation produced inside smart buildings and smart cities with 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT) is a newly discovered concern as WHO and scientific evidence indicate that the radiation may cause unintended health problems such as tumors and cancer. Currently, sustainability rating systems such as LEED, BREEAM, Estidama or WELL do not consider this radiation aspect though they consider several environmental and health problems. As smart buildings and smart cities are about to become a reality, innovating the design to create a zero radiation smart building helps overcome many health and environmental problems. The novel concept of 'zero radiation smart building' design is one among the first to discuss how to design a building that is both smart and 'safe' besides providing wired connectivity. Different indoor and outdoor design features ranging from zoning in buildings, selection of building materials to landscape design are explicitly modelled to show how radiation generated in a smart building can be made zero. This idea utilizes Computer Simulation technology (CST) and 3D modelling software to showcase how radiation can be reduced to zero for a smart building. The proposed innovation idea is to mitigate EMR impact on humans and the environment in smart buildings and smart cities.
