Any successful Internet of Things deployment means significant stream of sensor data. Although there are infrastructural challenges in storing, managing, learning, and securing such data, the true challenge is in making such data actionable and useful to everyday users. For example, it turns out that locating a vacant conference room on campus and finding other shared resources is the most useful application on campus and that is the topic addressed in this proposal. We adopt a top-down, user centered approach in our infrastructure design, with a strong emphasis on the user experience.
