FORESENSE TECHNOLOGIES is an industry leader in the collection of visitor presence data and the analysis of how people act – and interact – on- site in real world settings to provide real-time analytics of foot traffic inside and around any physical location.
In a similar way to how behavioural data is utilised online through careful analysis of aspects such as dwell time, session duration, and unique and return visitations the Foresense platform collects data through sensors integrating with visitors’ smartphones allowing accessibility in real time so highly-informed, proactive decisions can be executed as trends are actually emerging.
These advances in technology present a wide range of possibilities and opportunities for educational institutions such as colleges, schools and universities to discover how students and staff are using classrooms, food, beverage and recreational facilities and even retail spaces on campus.
Data such as total time spent on campus, and the breakdown of time spent actively learning in class or the library, socialising at cafes and the tavern and leisure time spent in common rooms or the gym can be collected and collated.
Aggregated data can be used to establish peak demand times for specific sections within facilities such as the library copy room or vending machine areas to better serve students by lessening wait times to keep movement flowing and alleviate congestion.
