Sensors that collect data are increasingly embedded into our lives – in our mobile phones, streets and buildings, cars and powerlines, even in our kettles and clothes. Too often in this swelling flow of connectivity and information people and places are treated as passive sources of data. What information is being collected? By whom and for what purpose?
Citizen Sensing is about empowering people and places to understand and use smart tech and data from sensors to tackle the issues they care about, connect with other people who can help, and take positive, practical action.
