Smart University – The University as a Platform
The Smart University is the vision of the university as a platform that delivers foundational context data to drive the analysis and improvement of the teaching & learning environment. Low-cost motion detection and other sensors coupled with low-cost credit-card sized computers such as the Raspberry Pi open up opportunities to equip rooms with sensors. As the Raspberry Pi is a full-fledged computing device not only can one acquire data, but also process it in context. In this talk I want to present this vision and some first results.
