Intermittent lack of context menus and bad structural search results are fixed now. (We neglected to `make clean` in our build farm, so we were missing unchanged files.)

EventBoard/Redwood Systems PoC starting in MTV

Starting this week, WPR and IT will run a Proof of Concept (PoC) in MTV using the Redwood Systems motion sensors paired with the EventBoard room scheduling system to automate release of rooms when not in use. In the test conference rooms, the sensors will automatically release a room for rescheduling if the motion sensors detect no movement 15 minutes after the scheduled meeting start time. The Redwood Controller will also change the status LED lighting next to the room from Occupied (red) to Available (green).
The rooms in the PoC (all in Mountain view) will include

  • Firestorm
  • The Flash
  • Hawkgirl
  • Hawkman
  • Iron Man
  • Thor
  • Alpha Centuari

Please contact Lisa Gray ( or Mark Jeffries ( if you have any questions.
