Intelligent Low-Power Displaying and Alerting Infrastructure for Smart Buildings
The paper presents the architecture of an intelligent displaying and alerting system, based on a scalable integrated communication infrastructure. The system is envisioned to offer dynamic display capabilities using the wireless ePaper technology, as well as to enable indoor location-based services such as visitor guidance and alerting through iBeacon-compatible mobile smart devices. The system will include a secure web management console, along with the software interfaces and procedures necessary for collecting and automatically displaying any relevant information and notifications. As the system is designed primarily for educational and research institutions, remote authentication will be allowed through eduroam technology. Tests regarding the performance of the used wireless ePaper Displays are performed, specifically regarding their response times, and recommendations are made based on the results.
