Campus libraries in modern universities provide students with group study areas where they can work and study collaboratively. In this paper, we propose a complete solution for the creation of study groups in future smart libraries featuring (i) a smartphone application to create study groups, (ii) a hybrid Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Wi-Fi indoor positioning system to localize study groups and (iii) a server-based infrastructure based on MQTT and Node-RED to advertise study groups to other students. We describe in details all components of the architecture and perform an experimental evaluation of the indoor positioning system in a realistic scenario.

Abstract

Campus libraries in modern universities provide students with group study areas where they can work and study collaboratively. In this paper, we propose a complete solution for the creation of study groups in future smart libraries featuring (i) a smartphone application to create study groups, (ii) a hybrid Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Wi-Fi indoor positioning system to localize study groups and (iii) a server-based infrastructure based on MQTT and Node-RED to advertise study groups to other students. We describe in details all components of the architecture and perform an experimental evaluation of the indoor positioning system in a realistic scenario.
