Sensor readings, with temperature, light, humidity every 5 minutes at 8 locations (trial, 2014 to 2015)

In 2012, Council and ARUP partnered with the University of Melbourne on a three year Australian Research Council Linkage Grant for Creating a Smart City through Internet of Things." The aim of the research was to develop new systems and algorithms that can help City administrators remotely monitor, understand and interpret real time information on urban environments" The researchers are now applying the research in the City by deploying a three month 'real-world' data collection and testing trial. The environmental sensors, measuring light levels, humidity and temperature, have been deployed at Fitzroy Gardens and Library at the Dock. The data collected will assist the Urban Landscapes branch to better understand and communicate the impact of canopy cover for urban cooling.
