Let’s learn how to make and use do-it-together sensors and technology to monitor our environment.
Let’s learn how to make and use DIT (do-it-together) sensors and technology to monitor our environment. In recent years there has been a surge of interest in citizen sensing: people using sensors, often low-cost and self-built, to collect data that helps them find out more about issues they care about.
When individuals and communities are part of designing and building their own digital sensors, previously obscure ‘smart-city’ technologies start to have a clear purpose: helping to make sense of the world and take steps to change it for the better.
This event is the first of an ongoing series of workshops to introduce, develop and co-create a community around citizen sensing in Limerick. Everybody is welcome and no previous experience on electronics or sensors is required.
