Team: Prof. Nigel Davies (Lancaster University)
Partners: University of Manchester, The Ordnance Survey
This project aims to form a partnership between PETRAS researchers at Lancaster and CityVerve researchers at Manchester University in order to:
- Explore the use of IoT sensors and displays to provide users with trusted visibility of local IoT devices in urban environments;
- Demonstrate the potential of such an approach using IoT air quality sensors and displays deployed at three locations within the CityVerve region;
- Report on user attitudes to IoT visibility and produce guidelines for future deployments;
- Conduct an initial study of how display-based sensor and data visibility can be used in conjunction with maps of IoT sensors to further user awareness and trust in an otherwise invisible IoT infrastructure.
