Impact statement

A number of social, technical and governmental innovations are put together in this project: Innovative sensing method: connect new, low-cost sensors with a wireless network (wifi/mesh) for communicating real-time data Open data with citizens: the measured data forms a refined data-flow from sensing points at places where people live and work Governance with government embracing bottom-up practice: forming a ‘big picture understanding’ to build a shared, real-time, accepted ‘diagnosis’ of the local distribution of urban air quality

Features

  • OpenFlow
  • Advanced wireless
