Mapiq workplace sensor
The workplace sensor is a sensor Mapiq has developed in-house, based on capacitive sensing technology. The sensor is placed underneath a desk and provides accurate and real-time insights into workplace availability. On top of this, the onboard iBeacon transmitter can be used to locate your colleagues.
If you’re working activity-based, finding available workplaces can be a challenge. But it no longer has to be with our workplace sensor. Mapiq’s workplace sensor creates a tangible link between the physical work environment and the Mapiq platform. Most sensors just detect someone is there, which only informs the analytics dashboard. It doesn’t give feedback to the end-user. The Mapiq sensors give insights into available desks and up to date occupancy numbers of the office.
What’s in it for you?
Dissatisfied with what the market offered in terms of sensors we set off to develop our own workplace-specific sensor from the ground up. It’s quite unusual for a committed software company to start develop hardware, but in our case, a natural development.
So, what makes the sensor unique? The Mapiq sensor detects the presence of people at their desks and provides users with direct visual feedback. Capacitive technology senses under, but also through the desk with high precision. This quality is particularly useful for office spaces with standing desks. Collected data is sent to and processed by the Mapiq platform which provides the user with a real-time view of the workspace in an interactive 3D map.
Benefits of our sensor:
- Employees have real-time insight in the availability of workplaces on their smartphone, laptop and in ‘real-life’ when walking through the office.
- Employees are empowered to share workplaces through the release button.
- Employers have insight into workplace occupancy, down to individual level.
- Mapiq provides deeper insights into how your office is being used and what works.
