Have you often wondered where the quietest spot in the office is right now? In this talk, we explain how we built a real-time system that does just that using CircuitPython.

Workplace indoor environment quality is highly correlated with workplace satisfaction. Yet the measure of what’s good varies from person to person. In this talk, we discuss the process of developing a system which provides visibility over these factors.

The basic outline of the talk is the:

  • Hardware needed for such a system e.g Adafruit circuit playground express
  • Use of CircuitPython for firmware development (covering its history, and how it differs from microPython)
  • Tradeoffs of CircuitPython (easy learning curve and good for education but not good for use in production)
  • Code Walkthrough/demo
  • A demo of the system which shows us the spatial distribution of sound, light, and temperature levels in a workplace
