Poster Presentation at The University System of Maryland’s Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Symposium 2024
A member of the smartCampus project team at DAMS (Nikki Cayas, University of Maryland, Baltimore County) presented a poster at The University System of Maryland’s Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation Symposium 2024.
Nikki presented the team’s ongoing research that seeks to improve the quality of life for individuals by identifying the most comfortable work location for users in a controlled environment. Through the transformation of raw quantitative data captured by decibel, degree, and motion sensors into human-comprehensible notions, such as noise level, temperature, and occupancy level, we are capable of determining the most optimal work location for users based on their comfortability preferences. We anticipate uncovering valuable trends related to user preferences and the effectiveness of our data collection, translation, and protection processes. Looking ahead, we envision deploying our product in the library at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) to provide a valuable resource that enhances the study processes for UMBC students. As our research unfolds, we hope to continue improving user comfort in work and positively impacting daily lives.
