For Assignment 1, I chose to look at a tech company called Inpixon and its Indoor Positioning Analytics platform. This interested me for two reasons:
- I work in New Westminster and we are on the brink of moving into a brand new facility. The building is a modern education learning environment, and I have been looking at other ways to modernize other aspects of the school.
- I mountain bike a lot, and one of my friends I bike with sold his company (and its technology) to Inpixon. He still works with them and our talks while biking up gravel roads and trails about where this technology could go (he started with shopping malls in the lower mainland and has now branched out into Hospitals in the US) really sparked an interest for me about the potentials of implementing this platform within a school setting.
In no way am I endorsing this company (I am not getting paid… well, Frank buys me a beer once in awhile), but I really find it interesting just how much information can be gathered and manipulated within a building.
On a side note, I had this assignment saved and ready to present as a read only powerpoint, but WordPress wouldn’t let me upload it for security reasons… so I have attached a less “bells and whistles” PDF version. Please go to Read Mode and enjoy!
