University of Waikato

Concurrent Session 1A
See It, Analyse It, Interact With It: Anytime, Anywhere
Being aware of what’s happening around the University each and every second is essential to take action when needed. Real-time, easily accessible data reports that are intuitive can provide the faculty through interim analyses of the registered data, which can facilitate further improvement in studies and quality activities. Compelling visuals can help quickly grasp the story the data has to tell the viewer. This can further be enriched by allowing the viewer to interact with the screen.
Six TV screens were added in the University to initialise the beginning phase for AUTv. The aim of this project is to connect the user with the data rather than it being static data displayed on a tv screen by creating an own internal TV channel for broadcasting reports, photos and notifications. Custom reports can be built, photos can be added along with live notifications about the different activities happening around the campus.
The application engages the user to interact with the screens. It provides a direct line of communication to get the customer’s questions answered. Using the Messenger application, users can interact with the AUTv Screens, thereby being available to retrieve/send information as needed.
Technologies Used: C#, JQuery, SignalR, PowerBI
Here’s a video that shows the interactive screen
