caju / interactive workplace assistant


In the course of technological change, all existing office workplaces are changing and more flexible working models are emerging, which present workers with new challenges and problems. In order to promote a healthy way of working and living, the interactive assistant caju supports intensively working people proactively and highly individually. With the help of an intelligent algorithm, it independently connects to all networkable components in its environment and learns personal habits, behaviour patterns and working methods. This turns the individual workplace into an intelligent infrastructure.
