The Ultimate Guide to Smart Campuses - One Touch to Handle All

1. Exploring the Smart Campus

Imagine stepping onto a campus where everything from libraries to cafeterias is interconnected through the internet. This isn’t a scene from a futuristic movie—it’s happening right now, thanks to the advancements in IoT (Internet of Things) and AI (Artificial Intelligence) technologies. These technologies have enabled campuses to transform into smart campuses, offering features that were once considered far-fetched.

1.1 Smart Libraries at Your Fingertips

One of the standout features of a smart campus is the smart library. For many years, the problems of library borrowing and returning quick inventory, search, and disorganized book arrangement have been plaguing the management and staff of the library. With the continuous development of society, the concept of a “smart library” has emerged.

Smart libraries come equipped with:

1.1.1 Library Maps

Library Maps can easily navigate the vast array of resources available. It is a favorable trend to introduce interactive GIS maps into the navigation system of smart libraries. Not only can smart GIS maps incorporate crowdsourced data using red line annotation tools available to logged-in users, but logged-in users can mark maps to indicate incorrect or updated features.

1.1.2 Inquiry Chats

Have questions? Get them answered in real time without waiting.

In February 2024, Open AI released the AI-generated video big model Sora. The AI-generated video big model represented by Sora brought new opportunities and challenges to the innovation and development of libraries. In terms of user services, Sora can help build intelligent consulting services, human-machine collaborative education models, and intelligent entertainment and social models. In addition, Sora can also empower libraries to develop accurate, novel, and intelligent digital information products and cultural and creative products, and carry out more personalized reading promotion.

These tools not only save time but also enhance the overall learning experience, allowing students to focus more on their studies and less on the logistics of finding information.

1.2 Campus Life Enhanced by AI and IoT

The integration of AI and IoT doesn’t stop at libraries. The entire campus benefits from these technologies. Through AI and IoT, campuses can manage resources and operations more effectively, ensuring a smoother and smarter educational experience. Students can enjoy:

1.2.1 Optimizing Campus Space

Universities stand out as the most important activity centers and have a profound impact on the development of human civilization. Well-designed smart campus Spaces, characterized by comfort and aesthetic appeal, can attract individuals and encourage long-term stays. For example, zoning energy consumption control and temperature regulation through QNEX’s intelligent temperature regulation system can create a pleasant, energetic, and emotionally resonant interactive space for teachers and learners on campus.

Visionary facility managers are applying space and asset utilization through QNEX smart Campus scenario analytics to gain insight into which space is under or over-utilized. With this information, they can rethink and design Spaces to meet the changing needs of students, faculty, and other groups, helping to ensure that the Spaces they need are more available when needed.

1.2.2 Smart Notifications for Seamless Communication

As a school administrator, how to transmit all kinds of information better is a problem that every campus needs to face. Therefore, an interconnected campus broadcast architecture is a key architecture. The intelligent QNEX campus-wide broadcasting system is a campus communication tool based on intelligent technology, which is used to realize the information transmission and announcement release on the whole campus. It can provide a variety of functions and services, such as real-time broadcasting, emergency notification, learning resource sharing, event publicity, and so on.

1.2.3 Comprehensive Campus Security with QNEX

There are various types of campus security incidents, including but not limited to campus violence, bullying, accidental injury, public health emergencies, etc., which require campus security systems to be able to effectively prevent and quickly respond to different types of security incidents. QNEX security system uses high-definition cameras, sensors, and other Internet of Things devices in full-time, all-around real-time monitoring, such as when there is a fight, the system will quickly warn, in advance to prevent the occurrence of dangerous events.

A significant advantage of smart campuses is their ability to maintain strong alumni networks.

2.1 Alumni Portals for Fostering Vibrant Alumni Connections
