Scenarios

    1. The Student. Entering the building you login and are recognised as a registered student. You are enabled to locate your teachers. You need to hand in a report to Prof Ionescu. The display indicates that he is in the building, in room 3-21 and is available for consultation. You think that whilst you are there you should see your tutor Dr Popescu but the display shows that although he is in he is not available. You deliver your report and before leaving you check your tutor again, now he is available and in room 2-06 (his office) so you go to see him. Afterwards you decide you need a beer so you leave the building logging out as you go.

    2. The Professor. You enter the building and remember to login, the display welcomes you. You go to you office and remember let the system know you are there and that you do not want to be disturbed. One hour later you need to consult a colleague Prof Ionescu, you see from the system that he is in the lab at 3-21 so you go there. You forget to identify yourself and the system reminds you. Whilst you are there a student hands in a report.

    3. The Safety Officer. There is a fire alarm. You see from the system that all the Profs are leaving the building except Prof Ionescu, (you suspected that he wouldn't have noticed because he's a little absentminded, its about time he retired!) you are able to go to the lab at 3-21 and escort him out of the building.

    4. The University Rector. You decide to do a check on which of your academic staff is in the building. The system informs you, most of them are and you make a note of those that are not, they had better be there next time you check!

OK, so this is all a little bit false, but the detailed specification will guide you as you turn it into a working system with your own detailed specification. A commercial system of this type would use technology beyond our budget so we had to be inventive – TV remotes are easy to obtain and can be used for many purposes as a wireless transmitter. You should carry on this inventiveness in your design and presentation. Remember you will have succeeded no matter how you are placed in the competition provided you meet the basic specification. Good Luck and enjoy.
