Smart Services CRC launch Cruiser Interactive company with connected surfaces software



An innovative software platform from the new spin-off company of Smart Services CRC – Cruiser Interactive – that turns walls, tables, whiteboards and smart devices into touchscreen networks for group collaboration is set to debut at the Connect Expo 2014 in Melbourne 13-14 March 2014.

Developed by Smart Services CRC from research by the University of Sydney, Cruiser is set to revolutionise group collaboration in any domain where visual planning and group collaboration is required, such as the advertising, signage, marketing, property development, architecture, design, government, town planning, defence, and emergency response and education sectors. The platform is already revolutionising business operations for clients such as Victoria Police, Mondelez, Jumptank and Colliers International.

Cruiser adds a new dimension to collaboration, allowing users to flick information from any surface (personal smart devices, tablets, tables, walls and whiteboards) to any other surface located anywhere in the world for dynamic group discussion. Participants can annotate images and video; resize, manipulate and copy media files; contribute additional content; and share and work on information with multiple peers and colleagues anywhere in the world.

Dr Anthony Collins, Product Leader of Cruiser Interactive, said “Cruiser provides users with the ability to engage customers in new ways, transforming the way they do business, and giving them the ability to collaborate digitally with teams.”

“This multi-user software allows the integration of any interactive touch screen device to provide seamless content sharing and collaboration by colleagues in the same room or across the world. It will literally open doors to business and create a deeper understanding of a product or system that’s being discussed or sold to a prospective buyer,” he said.

You can see the Cruiser in action at the Connect Expo 2014 on 13-14 March at Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre, Entry Door 7, Booth 69.
