When individuals and communities are part of designing and building their own digital sensors, previously obscure ‘smart-city’ technologies start to have a clear purpose: helping to make sense of the world and take steps to change it for the better. Citizen Sensing Lab is a series of events and workshops to introduce, develop and co-create a community around citizen sensing in Limerick.
Free Event: Everybody is welcome and no previous experience on electronics or digital sensors is required.
