CSIRO's Darwin Living Lab webinar series

Sensor networks can collect important information about our urban environments. This can include data on rainfall, dust, noise and humidity levels. Global advances in sensors mean that it’s now possible to collect and communicate data for specific locations, in real time. This webinar will explore opportunities for the ethical use of urban sensor network data, and how this can help to create cool and liveable tropical cities.
