QuTi is a research project performed in the context of iBrussels, a research project on Wi-Fi Architecture financed by the Brussels Capital-Region and supervised by Centrum voor Informatica voor het Brussels Gewest (CIBG). In QuTi, WISE developed a framework that provides real-time information on queue-sensitive events. QuTi relies on existing detection technologies to monitor crowds and measure bustle, and delivers this time-sensitive information real-time through a Web site and a mobile application. Based on this real-time information, visitors can decide when is the best time to visit.
The framework has been applied to measure the traffic in the student restaurant of the VUB. A screenshot of the desktop application developed for the restaurant is shown below.
The following figure shows the restaurant application in a mobile browser:
And the last picture shows the dedicated Mobile application that has been developed for monitoring the traffic in the student restaurant:
