Our initial steps in this project involved making decisions regarding the technical stack and architectural engineering. In under one month, the Euristiq team successfully validated the concept and created a Minimum Viable Product (MVP). During this phase, the solution had a basic design aimed at risk identification, architecture testing, and the integration of Tektelic’s sensors with online calendars.
We undertook end-to-end development of the application, encompassing everything from business analysis and design to software development, quality assurance support, and implementation. Additionally, we provided the client with all necessary documentation and user guides.
Complex IoT system
The solution comprises a room booking app, E-Ink displays, and smart room sensors. Each meeting room is equipped with one PIR sensor, and each chair is fitted with acceleration-based movement sensors to gather data on room occupancy. The E-Ink displays are seamlessly integrated with Outlook and Google Calendars, facilitating effortless meeting room bookings, rescheduling, and cancellations. These displays are conveniently positioned at the entrances of the meeting rooms.
Room booking app
The app is integrated with the LoRaWAN IoT gateways and sensors, provides room analytics, and displays real-time occupancy status.
- For maintenance: office managers can configure and modify meeting room settings, including such parameters as room capacity, floor plans, and the components of the solution, such as devices (gateways and sensors) and the inventory of available meeting room equipment (projector, whiteboard, web camera, TV).
- For booking: users can view available rooms and filter them by floor, capacity, the equipment they have, and free time slots for booking. The app is synchronized with Outlook and Google Calendars for comfortable booking.
Smart telemetry data is gathered and presented in user-friendly IoT dashboards, accompanied by an analytics report. These dashboards provide insights into performance and usage statistics, including metrics such as meeting room efficiency, ‘false booking’ rates, room capacity utilization, time of usage efficiency, room occupancy rates, peak booking hours, room popularity, bookings by employees, and more. The dashboards are seamlessly synchronized with room bookings in Microsoft Outlook or Google Calendar.
