What can you use the DTU Smart Library for?

The vision of DTU Smart Library is to create an “indoor living lab” where students and researchers can develop, test and present smart technologies. We also collaborate with companies.

If you are a student, you can:

  • Do a project on DTU Smart Library and smart technologies – e.g. wayfinding, facility management or indoor climate
  • Make your own sensor, install it in the library and collect data. You can then compare your results with the library’s sensor data
  • Collect data from the sensors already installed in the library and use these in your assignment.
     

If you are a researcher/teacher, you can:

  • Use the library as a living test lab for data collection and use  sensor technology as a supplement to your teaching and supervisor activities
  • Use the library as a living lab for your own research
  • Use our sensor data to make qualitative and quantitative data analyses.
     

If you are a company, you can:

  • Collaborate with us – install and test your own sensors or monitor the use of your products in a library hall that has 2.500 daily visitors.
  • Examples of collaborations:
    • IOT Danmark has installed sensors in the library; these generate data and knowledge about the indoor climate
    • Upcoming collaboration with a furniture company. The company will place sensors on their furniture to monitor how people use the furniture various zones in the library
    • Upcoming collaboration with a plant company. The company will install sensors in flower boxes to measure the water and fertilizer levels and thereby reduce time spent on plant care.
