Green Watch PICNIC presentation by Daniel Kaplan Green Watch PICNIC presentation by Daniel Kaplan Presentation Transcript

  • The "vision"
    • From Fing's "Villes 2.0" (Cities 2.0) programme
    • Multiply the number of urban environmental sensors by 1,000
    • Promote people's participation in building sustainable cities
    • Encourage other sensor networks to share their data
    • Facilitate the emergence of new knowledge, new services, more informed decisions, new discussions…
  • The initial experimentation The watch measures Ozone (O3), Noise every few seconds. It carries a GPS and a Bluetooth chip. The phone displays the information in a graphic way (the "Eye"). It transmits the data to the CityPulse platform. The platform displays the data in several ways. It also makes the raw data available. View slide
  • From individual measurement… 3 individual watches An itinerary View slide
  • … To collective maps… Ozone Noise
  • … To shared (anonymized) data
  • Bluetooth
    • Platform
    • Data
    • Algorithms
    • Privacy
    • Availability

NGO? Corporate? Platform software developer(s) Basic service/maps + API management/SLA by platform operator Other applications by … anyone Now What?
  • Next Steps CityPulse: Scale the Platform to agregate , process, and make available heterogeneous environmental data for Research, Decision-making, Public discussion and Service innovation Green Watch V3: Test and validate mobile, wearable, low-consumption, low-maintenance air quality/noise sensors. Integrate into various objects and test their desirability/convenience. June 2009 Paris proof of concept Large-scale trials in several European cities Other sensor networks Other data Other maps Other uses…
  • Issues
    • Technical
        • Low-energy, low-maintenance, reasonable quality environmental sensors
        • Managing large numbers of heterogeneous data (different parameters, contexts, biases, rules…)
    • Social
        • Motivating citizen participation in distributed measurement
        • Individualized feedback/service to the users Vs. Privacy
        • Data intelligibility and usability
        • Co-opetition between decentralized data production and access / official environmental management processes and devices
    • Economic
        • Platform business model
        • Open data re-use and service creation platform
  • Now What?
    • CityPulse Platform:
    • Agregating heterogeneous data
    • Processing raw data
    • Managing privacy
    • Making data available
