Reservator only works with Google apps. After syncing your account with your tablet, Reservator will automatically seek meeting rooms from the account. See help for sharing resources at https://support.google.com/a/answer/1034381?hl=en. You can also find help for creating calendars for shared resources at https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/34584?hl=en.
You can instantly book a meeting room with Reservator. You can also view the rooms calendar and book a meeting somewhere in the future. Simply pick the time and enter your name and it’s booked.
The display will be green if the room is available, yellow if a meeting is about to start soon and red if it’s reserved. With this information you can quickly decide what conference room you want to use by just walking around.

We recommend setting up a unique Google account for the tablet itself.
SCAMPI Apps is an distribution platform for applications that use the SCAMPI opportunistic networking library. With the library, it is possible to create network applications (SCAMPI apps) that work even with no network infrastructure. The SCAMPI apps themselves are distributed using the SCAMPI library as well. This makes it possible to create sophisticated networks even in remote locations or venues where the network infrastructure is overloaded.
SCAMPI relies on the concept called opportunistic networking. In practice, the SCAMPI library establishes ad-hoc connection with each SCAMPI-enabled device nearby, allowing them to sync their messages. When this gets done with multiple devices, SCAMPI networks can span a considerable geographical area. However, it should be noted that SCAMPI messages are not always real-time (or near-real-time) communication means, as the messages can be sent to peers only after establishing a connection to them.
The SCAMPI Apps developer documentation is going to be released soon on this page.
