Technology is constantly changing the way we live our lives. The constant evolution of
technology means the way people do business is also changing. Trending technologies, like the Internet of Things (IoT), are transforming our environment and the way we consume content through our devices. Workplaces are no exception, and the concept of “smart office” is very present nowadays, allowing us to make the physical work environment more intelligent and adaptable.
The objective of this final project thesis is the development of a context aware content
management system and its integration into a task automation platform. The project will
provide users with custom content based on contextual event sources. These contents can redefine the way users interact with their workplace, having a positive impact on their performance and boosting productivity overall.
Users can create their own custom content through the content management system.
Making use of the graphical editor, users can create new content in an easy way.
The system has been integrated into a task automation platform in order to enable
context-aware content delivery based on semantic technologies. For this purpose we have defined new channels, rules and an ontology.
A mobile application has been used in order to capture events from beacons or other
channels, sending them to the Task Automation platform for evaluation. Users will get
notified on their phones if there is content available for them, depending on their context.
The project has been evaluated in a smart office environment, allowing its use for different cases, such as enhanced o ce navigation or company events announcements.
Finally, we present the conclusions drawn from this project, the problems that we have
faced during the development and possible future lines of work.
