Dublin to become the first fully ‘sensored’ city in the world


A new project will see Dublin become the first fully ‘sensored’ city in the world.
The pilot project, run by Intel and Dublin City Council, will place 200 sensing gateways – up to six sensors for each gateway – across the city to test their use in city management and citizen engagement.

The sensors will gather and monitor environmental data such as air quality, and noise levels in the city, and will make the data available to residents and other parties on an open basis. Intel will deploy a wide-scale research platform in the city to help facilitate the project.

It’s hoped that both the data provided from this as well as real-time traffic information provided by Dublin City Council will give residents the opportunity to shape the way the city is developed.
