A task of locating particular seats in a partially (or otherwise) occupied auditorium can be difficult. The need for this may arise in a variety of situations in the emerging IoTcentric world. We present in this paper the development of a system we have tagged SeatSense. It is a means of detecting the availability or occupancy status of seats in any hall (of any conceivable capacity). SeatSense can find applicability in various indoor situations such as: concert halls, stadiums, churches, cinema halls and even outdoors e.g. in buses where seats are not pre-assigned. A sensor node located in each seat detects if it is occupied and feeds back information to a data sink where it is interpreted and visualized. This paper addresses the technical issues of designing and implementing seat occupancy detection technology in large auditorium with fixed or mobile seats using wireless sensor networks.
