In the era of IoT, automized buildings are fundamental. This challenge presented by OSRAM allowed us to delve into the world of smart buildings, in order to improve the efficiency of the daily tasks.
What it does
The Android application provides real-time queue updates of various localities in order to improve one's choices of visiting a locality.
How we built it
Using raspberry-pi, lightintelligence (dashboard) and sensors (provided by OSRAM), we collected real-time data. We then build an android application using android studio and REST-API's (which transmitted data into the application). Finally, we built a UI for the web application using proto.io (a UI interface)
Challenges we ran into
As we were working for the first time with raspberry-pi, setup was the main issue. Then collecting the data, using the sensor, was also an issue as we didn't have an idea on how to collect the data. At last, creating the android application was troublesome as we were making a mobile application for the first time.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Being able to setup the raspberry-pi with the server, transmitting data into the lightintelligence platform, making the mobile application interactive and successfully coming up with an effective business model were some of our main achievements.
What we learned
We learned about mobile application development, user-interface design, working with hardware and complex business models.
