Company: Team One
Team One is an open concept agency and since no one has an office we have meeting rooms called
Huddle rooms. These rooms are dedicated for teams to meet in for a brief amount of time. In total,
we have 33 rooms where anyone can hold meetings. Since Team Oners don't know what rooms are
currently open they have to walk down the aisles looking for a room which is inefficient.
The Creative Technologist group came up with a way to make this process more efficient and has made
the office as a whole more productive. We created sensors that reside in each Huddle room that
detect motion. This motion sensor is attached to an Arduino clone that is capable of sending radio
frequencies (RF). This Arduino talks to a Windows Machine. This computer is the middle man in
sending messages to update a website.
Every time a person walks into a huddle room it will update this website in real-time informing
anyone what Huddle rooms are open or occupied. The website also hosts the functionality of checking
into rooms, Therefore, a Project Manager can update the team of where the meeting will be held.
