||Receptionists and information boards are among the most common ways of
guiding and assisting people visiting organizations. The goal of this project is to
develop software that can supplement or act in place of the two aforementioned
approaches. This allows receptionists to put more effort in the complex tasks
that require human intervention and relieves employees of keeping information
boards up to date.
Touch screens provide visitors with easy access to information they need. For
some interactive tasks, such as sending messages, booking meetings and so on,
the software is able to assist visitors in performing those tasks. As each screen
has a fixed placement, the software is able to customize the displayed information
based on the location.
Furthermore, the software attempts to integrate with as many existing data
sources for extracting information as possible. This reduces the amount of explicit
interactions that employees need to have with the software.
The final product will be used at the Department of Informatics and Mathematical
Modelling, at the Technical University of Denmark. The department has
invested in a large touch screen that will be placed at an entrance of Building
