The use of sensors, big data and
analytics is creating a myriad of
possibilities to improve the design
and delivery of services.
at ASU, how can we use this data/context to improve
services and positively influence student success?
objective: to deliver a high quality, highly personalized
educational experience to every student, AT SCALE
Crowd motion studies/facial expression recognition
Environmental monitoring/feedback (fan control)
Queue wait time estimation (concessions, restrooms)
Noise monitoring/feedback (Victory Cheer game)
Athlete performance monitoring/feedback (wearables)
Real time parking density feedback/wayfinding
Pitch/playing surface health
Ground water monitoring
ASU/DCU/Intel research collaboration in Sun Devil Stadium/Croke Park Stadium
What We’ve Done
Gen 1: Game Day Experience
A Smarter Sound Game
Upgraded Mobile App
Real Time Parking
• Live parking data is displayed on
the ASU’s interactive map layer with
color-coded polygons: red lots are
full; yellow lots are almost full; green
lots have plenty of capacity.
• Custom event maps
– Only relevant POIs
– Custom POI infor for events
– Time-boxed availability
• Geo-fence definitions
• Ads / coupons associated with
map categories or POIs
• Internal building maps
What We’ve Done
Gen 2: Stadium Suite
Water Flow Sensors
App Usage Visualizations
Integration with Alexa Skillset
Tillman Tunnel Cam
ESPN RSS Scores
Parking Lot Availability
Mobile App User Density
AWS Dash Integration
What We’re Doing Next
Gen 3: Scaling to a Smart Campus
Vehicle/Golf Cart Reservation and Tracking
Automated Attendance Tracking
Building out Alexa Skillset
Integrating other information sources
• People Counting
• Queue Time (Hardware Solution)
• Queue Time (Software Solution)
• Device Development and Testing
• Blue Tooth Bracelet
• Cisco CMX for Wifi based identification
Alexa, tell ASU to show some spirit.
Alexa, where can I get a cold drink and a dog?
Alexa, when did ASU become a state university?
Alexa, is ASU an accredited school?
Alexa, how hot is it in Arizona?
Alexa, how many stars are in the sky?
Alexa, how can you see dark matter?
Alexa, how long is the Grand Canyon of Mars?
Alexa, how long is the Grand Canyon of Arizona?
Alexa, can you rap?
With ‘Hey Sparky’ a personal ASU Assistant is with you
from the moment you wake up.
The voice user interface will allow our students and guests
to have an assistant that will answer their questions, ASU or
otherwise, at the speed of sound. With it connected to all
ASU data sources, we’re able to query responses that
even Google or Amazon couldn’t return.
With ASU Assistant enabled buildings, residence halls,
mobile apps, web search and more, wherever you go, ASU
assistant will be there too. Whether it’s a lecture, an art
exhibition, or athletic event, you’ll never have to pass
another event on campus and wonder what’s going on.
Never miss another moment.
Next time you wake up, ask Sparky about what the day
holds for you, and wake up the Sun Devil within.
Future of Fleet &
We can help monitor usage, location, and
average run time to aid in predictive
maintenance and sustainability efforts for
everything from carts to public transportation.
Lo-jacking carts, and all vehicles, will provide an
incredibly rich baseline of data around how
frequently carts and vehicles are being used,
where they are, and if they are being abused.
Future of Campus
Perhaps the greatest potential in improvements in
energy efficiency lies in our residence halls.
By turning our campus metabolism data into
actionable measures, we’ll be able to save millions of
dollars on wasted resources like energy and water.
Enabling the residence halls to moderate usage based
on dwell time, activity, or other programmable settings
will be revolutionary in our sustainability efforts.
Applying machine learning to streaming dashboards
empowers us to do such incredible good. Being alerted
of every opportunity to move towards zero waste will
elevate operational sustainability and dramatically
minimize our environmental impact.
Future of Wayfinding
We’re bringing sophisticated navigation to the great
indoors. We can take you to the right building, in the
right room, to the right seat, on the right day. Be
where you need to be, when you need to be there.
Students and guests can utilize campus navigation in
whatever medium they’re comfortable with, whether
that’s our mobile app maps, an integrated digital
kiosk, or ASU Assistant.
With wayfinding this easy, you can blaze trails you
never explored before. Be willing to try something new
with new people.
Imagine instructors being able to analyze facial
expression recognition in a class to measure overall
sentiment. Voice and facial recognition could help to
show quantity and quality of engagement.
With anonymous polling, instructors could measure
comprehension in real time. Attendance could be
automatically taken as students enter the room.
Instructors could send messages to a specific student
segment or cohort.
Can sensor data help us answer the questions: How
long was the student engaged in a particular activity?
How often does a student engage in a particular activity?
Does the student engage in activities that demonstrate
they have mastered a subject?
Let’s help forge a smarter path for them to become
Future of Wearables
Forget bringing your wallet, or purse. All you need is
your ASU wristband (or necklace, or watch, or clip).
As ASU’s identification card replacement, the wearable
could act as personal identification, provide emergency
services, allow location services, grant residence hall
access, provide alerts, notifications, augment student
health records, act as a fast pass into athletic events or
order pick-up, and integrate tap-to-pay functionality.
It’s time to update the identification card, with a Bracelet.
It’ll be maroon with gold accents, and a ton of high
it’s not about the things,
it’s about the data!
1 How do you get your data and from where?
2 How frequently do you need your data?
3 Where do you plan to store your data?
4 How do you present your data to developers
or to the world?
5 How do you secure your data?
6 Who owns the data?
7 Where will you analyze the data?
8 How do you determine what data has value?
9 How do you make decisions based off of your data?
10 Can your institutional culture take advantage of the data?
Privacy & Security Concerns
2. Security audits of IoT systems – sensors & gateways
3. Architecture review of all new technology
4. Privacy and efficacy research
5. EULA/contracts policy updates
6. Role of the IRB?
we are in the process of instrumenting the planet
An instrumented smart campus uses the
data and insight that becomes available
through technology to improve the lives of
its student body, community partners and
As well as being a hub, a smart campus is
also a compelling anchor. At the heart of
cities, the smart campus is a powerful
source of momentum and innovation.
