Sense Your City

This would be my third sensor in the city. You already know about the first two. This one is part of much bigger community called Sense Your City. As part of Sense your City, 100 people in 7 cities across the world will build and install the sensors. These sensors will measure air quality, noise, pollution, light and temperature. All sensors are expected to start streaming from 15th Jan and the data API’s will be available for exploring from Feb 6th. Last night I installed mine. There are totally 14 installations with-in Bangalore.

I have quite a few ideas for exploring and visualizing the data. Specially using the data from Bangalore’s sensors and other weather information. I am more than happy to collaborate on these ideas. Please do write to me if you have any ideas that we can collaborate on or you want to collaborate on my ideas. This will be my part of my Happy Tuesdays for a while.

    Hi Thejesh

    I am keen to learn the technology involved in this project and later initiate a similar one in rural parts of India.

    Please let me know if we can meet and discuss how I can volunteer to be part of this project.

    Cheers.
