Cubicle occupancy detection for Smart Public Toilets

I&T Wish Cubicle occupancy detection for Smart Public Toilets
(REF : W-0297)
Summary and Challenges Existing technology for cubicle occupancy in toilet is usually using magnetic detection for cubicle door. There might be limitation in certain environment and it cannot be fully applicable to all toilets.

We are searching for I&T solution which can help to detect cubicle occupancy with ceiling mount approach, vandalism prevention and are able to adapt environment in public toilets.
Expected Outcome
  1. Solution is preferred to adopt LPWAN technologies (i.e. LoRa, Sigfox, NB-IoT) in the sensing devices.
  2. The sensing device for cubicle occupancy should be able to accurately detect the occupancy in ceiling mount approach.
  3. The sensing detection in toilet shall be camera-less technology and non-video based solutions.
  4. The solution shall interface with 3rd party platforms/system for data sharing.
  5. The sensing devices shall be considered to mount securely with sufficient measures to prevent vandalism, ceiling mount, and are able to adapt environment in public toilets.
Expected Trial Duration 9-month duration
