Online Scanner for Phones that cannot scan QR codes
At out university, we struggle to find a study spot everyday. We walk through the library only to realize that all the study spots are full.
What it does
Our website tells people which library rooms are occupied, and it saves the time of having to look around. Users scan a QR code to log in and out of the room. There is also a timer that will log you out in case you forget to log out of the room.

What's next for Library App
We will redesign the app and activate a feature that will send users emails when their time at the study room is about to expire, so that they know they need to scan the QR code again. At our university, some people leave their things in the study room but don't come back for ours. This prevents other people from using the study room, which can be quite annoying. Having to scan the QR code again makes sure that people are actually in the room. If they fail to scan the QR code again, they will be logged out and someone else will be able to use the room.
Furthermore, we believe that our application is quite generic, in the sense that it can be deployed to other areas on campus; for example, the parking lot and the game rooms in the Campus Centre.
