|Startup Name||OTTO – Your Campus Companion|
|What problem are you solving?||OTTO\’s need has already been validated by commercial agreements with various education institutions, who consider it a highly valuable tool for student inductions and as a modern wayfinding tool replacement for paper maps and physical signs.Security personnel and students are equally thrilled that they\’ll be able to see their buses live on a map, avoiding situations where they may need to wait alone for a bus at night for indefinite periods of time.|
Of particular excitement for campus staff and teachers is the ability to push alerts out to students based on their location or faculty. For example, students might be walking past a building that will soon be closed for works, or perhaps has a discount offer for students.
|What is your solution?||Currently helping students, staff and visitors at Curtin University of Technology in Western Australia, OTTO will soon be arriving at campuses around the country and the world.OTTO shows you where your next bus is. Now you can see where campus buses are on a map, updated every few seconds!|
OTTO gets you where you need to go. Whether you\’re trying to find a classroom, the closest coffee shop, or are on the hunt for a vending machine snack, OTTO knows exactly where it is.
Very soon, OTTO will be able to show your friends where you are when you\’re on campus, if you want them to know. OTTO will also deliver important messages to you from campus staff.
