accessOCampus - A Universal Access System for Smart Doors and Gates

Context Presentation

On site access control exists almost everywhere in today's modern world. Keys have already been replaced by access cards in most places but accessOCampus aims to improve on these existing systems even more.

For less than 200€ (excluding the optional thermal camera) an accessOCampus client module can be built, this includes : NFC access card recognition, passcode entry, face recognition and a large screen for access related information. The system can also be locked down or forced open globally by an authorized security personnel via the easy to use web interface.

In theory, accessOCampus can be used to log who has entered any given zone and provide detailed information on those people. For instance, if any given access card is stolen we can detect who used it via face recognition either silently or to refuse access.This project could be implemented in select zones of Toulouse University to provide a low-cost high fidelity access system.

•    Provide a high security solution to restricted zones

•    Facilitate zone entry for the end user via face recognition•    Display easy to understand information


Conception of Timeline Component for Timed Data Analyzis

Context Presentation

SandFox project is a collaborative project between IRIT and Berger-Levrault company. This project is part of neOCampus initiative. The goal is to find best ways to represent and interact with data. These data are dated, we would like to be able to compare them over different periods.

To do that, we were doing research concerning different existing models of interaction with data. We were looking among those that most closely matched expectations of our collaborators. From these models, we were going to the conception step of low and medium fidelity prototypes. For the selected model, we were choosing a circular representation. This representation allows more visibility to compare several periods of time. We were also able to produce a low fidelity prototype (paper prototype) and a medium fidelity prototype in progress (make on adobe Xd).

In conclusion, we were founding a representation that allows a clear view of data but lacks interactives elements to change building data for another building or interaction modalities which have not yet been clearly defined.
