An I-Room provides a two storey building with central area and 4 work zones, designed for collaborative and brain storming style meetings. It can be used as an operations centre. Plenty of wall and floor space is available for displays and gadgets. The I-Room style buildings are used in the I-X/I-Room research on intelligent collaborative and task support environments at AIAI within the University of Edinburgh. The main feature of the I-Room is the active link up with external web services, collaboration systems and intelligent systems aids.

Potential Applications:

  • Virtual collaboration center
  • Business teleconferencing
  • Team Meetings for projects, products or reviews
  • Product Help Desks
  • Design to Product - product lifecycle workflow support
  • Environmental, building and plant monitoring center
  • Health and safety at work, disability awareness
  • Intelligent tutors, guides and greeters
  • Active demonstration pavilions
