“Workspaces are changing. Your creativity will help us better understand teams’ dynamics so that we can continue to deliver spaces that support productivity and wellbeing. By providing you with a 1-month backlog data of our indoor environmental sensors, anonymised occupancy and interactions data, we ask you to play with the data to identify and quantify informal interactions and predictively avoid meeting rooms ghosting. What would you do? Help us boost the office experience.”
Data for the challenge is available here.
“The SaltoKS Access Control platform allows for a variety of integration into other systems. Our open API ensures that third-parties can link their own platforms and solutions to our access-control system to fulfill their business needs. SaltoKS has experience with linking into coworking platforms, Smart office platforms, IOT platforms and many more. Can you think of a unique integration using our Access Control API, let your imagination run free, and see which devices, platforms or whatever you else you think of, could link with our systems?”
Cobot will be rewarding the team who will use their API at best (documentation available here)
