We decided to design a piece of technology using RF chips and a constantly rendering web applet in order to determine if a chair is being sat in. The end purpose is to determine what seats are available in the always full Morris Library.
In the future, the chairs can easily be iterated through and mapped onto a canvas of the Morris Library floor plans. Lights indicate whether or not the chairs are available (green) or taken (red). Retail companies could hop on board with technology such as this, as they can use the analytics available to gather big data on their customers and employees.
