Study the behaviour of technical communities by tracking their movement through wearables

This project has the goal to study the behavior of technical communities by tracking their movement through a wearable device and a number of readers. For organizations that are dealing with complex technical challenges it is extremely important that the technical population interacts and collaborates in order to exchange ideas and solutions . This sharing and collaboration intensifies and improves the quality and the quantity of innovation. A particular setup at the workplace will influence the way people move, gather and interact. Studying these movements, how they are influenced by changes in the physical environment and subsequently how it correlates to productivity and creativity gives a tremendous insight on how to foster innovation.
The project will implement the tracking hardware and software and it will gather population movement information as well as population behavior. Other metrics will be establish to understand how changes affect innovation and productivity. The collected data and interpretations results will be shared with the backers.
I have this project posted in Kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/horacio/social-behavior-in-technical-communities
