Has the institution installed vending machine motion sensors for at least one vending machine?:
Yes

A brief description of the technology used:

We currently have "SnackMisers" on two vending machines on campus, which control the energy use of the machines based on motion. We piloted twelve of these products, but it was determined that it is not the best fit for GW's vending machines, so we continue to explore additional options.


The percentage of vending machines with sensors:
0.10
