A six-point criteria for your effective use of city sensors
May 30, 2013 Paul G25

Extract from Microsoft in Government:

Sensors provide data that can help municipalities improve things like water quality, traffic flow, air quality, and other quality-of-life issues. Cities are finding that good data supports the effective administration and delivery of services and better living standards—and that the broad application of sensors creates an ample supply of data.

But how much of that data is meaningful?

Clearly, sensors that measure water quality are vital. But placing sensors on every light pole in the name of capturing data is likely to yield diminishing returns. While the cost of data management is decreasing, cities still need to be selective about the use of sensors.
