HSSMI carried out a six-month feasibility study at LUL. HSSMI provided occupancy sensors and the data infrastructure for aggregated data on utilisation through a dashboard, following the sensor installation.
In total, fifty-four desk and twenty-two meeting room sensors were installed across the three floors. The desk sensors installed under the desks detected a person by using a combination of infrared and temperature readings.
An accompanying dashboard provided a live view of desks and meeting rooms that were available or occupied on a floor layout. Available on a shared screen this would allow students to easily discover an available workstation.
Another view provides trends of utilisation of a workstation over a duration of time. This helped managers to spot under or over utilised areas and make changes to desk utilisation.
