6 December 2018

We had a wonderful evening yesterday when we gave a presentation at Camcycle’s monthly meeting. We are also doing an inventory to make sure we know how many sensor kits we have. The sensors that we built are all working but still need to be secured in their boxes. Some of them will go directly to Scotland to the Highland...

We are also looking into building a newer version of the sensor hub that will measure more air quality indicators (such as NO2). Around one of those new sensors, we will organise another workshop at the Centre for Computing History ( www.computinghistory.org.uk ). With lots of lessons learned at the workshop in summer, we...
