A self-service locker with Internet-enhanced capabilities
Lockers in public places are traditional, functional devices. They provide storage space for
travellers or people on the go. These lockers traditionally involve a payment system like a coin drop to pay for their use.
Lockers perform their task well, but are limited in their capabilities.
The ecosystems around these lockers have grown as transportation alternatives have increased. You disembark the train and store your bags before your much-anticipated, self-guided city tour. Imagine then immediately being given quick and easy access to a car share or bike share to take you on your journey?
This case study covers the design and specification of a computer for integration in an Internet-connected smart locker.
