Project: Person Location

Acronym: LOPES
Main Objective: The main objective of this project is to accomplish successful a system that can help a museum administrator to know some important aspects about the exhibits exposed in is museum. This are:
The exhibits that has more visitors.
The time spent by each visitor seeing the exhibit.
The pieces that has less visitors.
The number of visitors seeing the same exhibit at the same time.
Order the exhibits by type of visitors seeing them (child\adult, male\female).

More important aspects will be implemented. With this useful information the museum administrator can improve the quality of the exhibits and know which are replaceable or not.
The LOPES project is divided into three systems: localization system, management system and multimedia system.

The localization system gives information about the position in the museum of all the visitors. With this information the system can execute some actions.

The management system is responsible to collect all type of information given by the localization system. Plus, can configure the devices that is used in the localization system, and configure the multimedia system.

The multimedia system acts like a picture and exhibit labeling and interpretation information. Helps the visitors to understand better the pieces.
