(213) Me & My City

A session at Mozilla Festival 2012

Sunday 11th November, 2012

11:00am to 2:00pm (GMT)

As the Internet of Things matures, sensors will continue to proliferate - in public spaces, measuring air quality, noise pollution, weather and more; and in private hands, where some of the same things will be measured and some different - biometrics, health, energy consumption and so forth. Governments are already planning their ecosystems, and more choices become available to consumers every day.

But how will these things be interconnected to achieve their potential? There is a real opportunity here to empower citizenry and improve our way of life:

  • Enable people to understand and measure their quality of life, and decide for themselves what that entails
  • Enable governments to measure, evaluate and improve key services and infrastructure
  • Uncover new opportunities for governments and businesses to introduce components and services to close gaps and further improve urban life

This workshop will address the challenge: How can sensors improve the quality of urban life, creating a stronger connection between Me and My City?
