Project For Siemens CT and TUM for turning a Hotel into a Smart Hotel with a mobile App.
The goal of this project was to investigate the possibilities of new smart environment technologies for improving the guest experience in a hotel environment. To this end a distributed system consisting of a backend, front end, a mobile app, room automation software, and the required infrastructure was developed by the students during a 3 months project. The target system had four high-level requirements to focus on: hotel public area, including features such as automatic check-in or access to the display in the lobby, showing individual information to every guest; room automation including features that allowed guest to control different aspects of the hotel room (such as lights, air conditioning, TV, etc.) from a single app; location-aware providing of information about interesting objects around the hotel; and immediate guest feedback.
