PetrSU smart room (SR) is for holding conferences, meetings, lectures,
trainings, and some other activities important for the university research
and education processes. SR system provides a set of services that
simplifies activity organization and participation as well as automates
technical functions of information acquisition, sharing and transformation.
SR system is based on the service set principle. Any service is implemented
as a smart space agent that performs functions on client demand and/or
provides information related to specific component of the room.
The service set principle implies that some set of services are available
at the moment and are offered to participants in the room. Every service
can be accessed from client agent installed on user mobile devices.
The smart room service set consists of several services.
- Base services define base activity modes: conference, meeting, lecture.
- Discussion services support online blog-based discussions
during the activity.
- Sensor services feed the SR space with sensed information
about physical parameters of the room (temperature,
noise and illumination levels, presence of end-user mobile devices, etc.).
- World information services feed the SR space with information
contextually accessed from global sources (web services,
public data bases, etc.)
- Activity tracking services accumulate the history,
which can be further analyzed to make statistical descriptions
and to produce various kinds of reports.
See README and INSTALL files in the corresponding directories
