We are investigating using Wifi & 3G enabled e-ink screens to display useful information. For example bus time departures, or room availability. The main benefits of these displays are that they can be powered by battery and solar, and work over Wifi and 3G meaning power and wired networking does not need to be required at the location. They are also highly visible in sunlight unlike normal display screens.

How does it improve the student experience?

It allows us to provide a convenient and effective way to communicate important information, in locations previously unsuitable for displays.
