Project Description

For my thesis project, I created Network Scout. Network Scout provides conference attendees the resources necessary to maximize time at professional conferences to facilitate networking opportunities. Users receive a wristband fitted with a RFID chip when they check into the conference. When the user moves throughout the conference, they will be checked in real-time into the room they are in. The Network Scout mobile site can then be used to see real-time who you are in the room with and view professional information. With this knowledge, one is able to make informed decisions about who they should network with in their short, valuable time of at a conference.
