Design and Implementation of an Internet of Things Smart Meeting Application
KeywordsInternet of Things
During the past decades, a remarkable transformation in size and performance of portable electronic devices has taken place, leading to a new era where multi-core devices (phones, tablets, wearables) even in the size of a coin can offer ubiquitous computing capabilities to the end user. Meanwhile, broadband internet has become widely accessible, enabling users’ and devices to be connected whenever, wherever. “Internet of Things” (IoT) is topic that emerged from this seamless connectivity that current technology has to offer. Devices and things are enhanced with intelligence by providing their data and by accessing information generated by others. This study focused on the effects that IoT area can have in our everyday lives by examining a situation one can come across daily: a business meeting. It tried to prove that an Internet of Things Smart Meeting Application suite could help a meeting organiser to create, manage, and wrap-up a meeting, via his Android powered smartphone. Furthermore, an indoor localisation/navigation system was presented, that will escort users to the meeting venue using dynamically generated personalised invitations.
