In the course Ubiquitous computing my group and I worked on creating solutions that could create a better study environment in group activity rooms. The solutions used sensors to get information about the environment (no explicit user interaction was needed) and the data gathered was analysed by a computer. If the sensor data reached a threshold different actuators were activated. More info can be found on this website.
- Smart temperature system including a smart fan.
- Automatic room lighting.
- Pen holder that sensed the weight of all pens and indicated which ones had sufficient ink left.
We also mad this (goofy) video to demonstrate our problems and the solutions:
