Technology Features & Specifications
The front end consists of sensors and microcontroller that executes optimised signal processing and filtering algorithms that make occupancy detection robust to environmental factors (e.g., height of a table, material of an object placed on table etc.). Our solution comes with a backend Web-based portal software that includes relevant statistical analytics modules, as well as capabilities to generate alerts based on individual or aggregate occupancy-based events.
This product is relevant to public facility management for venues where there are a large number of seats and tables. Some examples include:
· Restaurants and food courts
· Coffee shops
· Concert Halls
Such Real-time occupancy detection can be useful for a variety of occupancy-aware services such as those described below:
. Real-time guidance and navigation to empty spaces;
. Occupancy-driven dispatch of service staff (e.g., cleaners at food courts or vendors in sports venues) and
. Analytics and compliance (e.g., ensuring that individuals do not block seats beyond a permitted duration).
Capacitive sensing solutions are based on interference of objects or people with the electromagnetic field. Together with the use of real-time occupancy detection, it will provide the following benefits which include:
· Spot newly arriving and seated customers;
· Display tables where customers have just left and need cleaning up;
· Real-time seat occupancy monitoring;
. Fine-grained statistics on facility usage
