PlaceOS ties together drivers into systems by running functions on a scalable cluster of computing resources. Similar to how AWS Lambda works.

Constraints allow creativity to blossom.Drivers can exist in multiple systems. Logic is system specific.Built on Crystal-lang, similar to ruby, but type-checked. https://crystal-lang.orgPlaceOS started in AV integration but, because they can integrate with anything, it has evolved to focus on workplace experiences. Streamlining your day, from when a persons enters a building until they leave.User actions generate data that give insight into utilization and enable features like contact tracing and gamification."Once you are integrated into every system, the experiences are only limited by your imagination."Digital twin - modelling real world systems in the digital realm.Mitigating risk through partnering with IT.Most stake-holder resistance concerns network security, GDPR conformance and data ownership.Conference room automation is evolving to eliminate the need for a touchpanel control interface.Open source removes vendor dependency and helps educate. It also helps create a cooperative driver development ecosystem.Clients are looking for a wholistic solution. A single workplace app (as opposed to multiple apps with separate functionality) drives usage and discovery of what the workplace is capable of.Gamification can be used to drive a behaviour, like using spaces in off-peak hours, by offering an incentive, like free coffee and gift cards.
