How Intel Is Transforming Dublin Into An Urban Internet Of Things
The tech company plans to place Gateway sensors around the city as part of their Smart City project.
Early this week Intel and the Dublin City Council announced their plans to install an Internet of Things demonstration in the city of Dublin.
The Smart City project will turn Dublin into the most densely sensored city in the world. The project will use Intel's QuarkTM processor-based Gateway platform and place 200 sensing gateways – which can have up to six sensors each – around the city to gather and monitor environmental data such as air quality and noise.
The data collected by the sensors will be made available to the public and interested parties on an open basis to allow developers to create apps that can provide Dublin's residents with real-time information about environmental conditions. The data from the project can also be used with real-time traffic information to help provide citizens with more insights into how to improve the quality of life in their city.
