The “New Normal”: Touchless Meeting Spaces?

The “new normal” is consistently shifting in the midst of this pandemic. Restaurants, grocery stores, retail establishments, and more are all adjusting and accommodating to meet their patrons’ needs and expectations. One major shift has seen many employees working from home, but a Gallup poll released this spring shows that up to 41% of the remote workforce would prefer to return to the workplace. As employees find themselves returning to the office, they’re bringing their own expectations for safety protocols. We’ll likely see a lot of organizations investing in precautionary technology, such as touchless meeting spaces.

What does a touchless meeting space look like?

Utilizing sensors, the room senses movement and engages the various meeting components of the space upon entrance. Additionally, the room would begin shut-down once the room detected it was empty. Like utilizing Alexa or Siri in the modern smart-home, voice controls can be utilized for most tasks ranging from meeting controls to lighting and temperature. Additionally, the meeting space might be utilized and controlled by your personal smartphone or laptop computer. This creates an easy and enjoyable meeting experience as your knowledge of your operating own device is high. Access to all of your content is locally available to you during your meeting or presentation.

This all may sound a bit like a scene out of a future-based sci-fi movie. Still, the technology is legitimate, and this sort of no-touch meeting space will likely be quite common as each organization begins to navigate this “new normal.”
