title Understanding face to face interactions in a collaborative setting: Methods and Applications
source The next city - New technologies and the future of the built environment [16th International Conference CAAD Futures 2015. Sao Paulo, July 8-10, 2015. Electronic Proceedings/ ISBN 978-85-85783-53-2] Sao Paulo, Brazil, July 8-10, 2015, pp. 155-174.
summary Extensive studies have shown that face-to-face interactions are a critical component in a work environment. It is an effective communication method that builds trust between team members and creates social ties between colleagues to ease future collaboration. In this paper we present our interaction analysis system that utilized an indoor tracking system to provide insights on the spatial usage and interaction dynamics in collaborative spaces. This gives space layout designers and managers quick feedback on the performance of the space and its occupancies and allows interventions and evaluations to be conducted to fine-tune the space layout or organization structure to achieve optimal performance. We demonstrate our system with data collected from a recent international design workshop.
keywords Face-to-face collaboration, indoor tracking, social interaction analysis, team management, workspace design.
