An intelligent urban measurement project that’s changing our understanding of cities and urban life.
The Array of Things (AoT) is a collaborative effort among scientists, universities, federal and local government, industry partners, and communities to collect real-time data on urban environment, infrastructure, and activity for research and public use. AoT uses an open intelligent sensing and edge computing platform called Waggle, developed at Argonne National Laboratory. AoT was funded primarily by the U.S. National Science Foundation.
Low cost, mobile air quality and other environmental sensors installed on City vehicles.
The City Scanner is a low-cost alternative to traditional methods of collecting environmental data. The sensor attaches to the roof of vehicles and collects detailed data at a more geographic level than traditional fixed-position sensors. The City Scanner sensors capture data related to environmental conditions including air quality (particulate matter 1, 2.5, and 10), temperature, humidity, and road conditions in New York City. The solar-powered sensors are removable and do not permanently alter vehicles.
By layering data relating to different social and environmental indicators, we hope to build a better picture of the circumstances of people living in urban areas and how their environment impacts their health.
Documenting the use of defensive urban design in the Greater Toronto Area and beyond.
Defensive urbanism, also known as hostile, unpleasant, or exclusive architecture is used to guide or restrict behaviour in urban space as a form of crime prevention, protection of property, and order maintenance.
From benches and ledges that prevent skateboarding and lying down to surveillance and security technologies that keep a watchful eye on the city, defensive urban design has become an everyday part of our urban fabric.
It's an intentional design strategy that targets people who use or rely on public space the most - like people who are homeless and youth - by restricting behaviours they engage in like sleeping in public and skateboarding. It also makes the city more hostile for other vulnerable residents like people who are elderly, people who have a disability, and young children.
OneCity allows developers and businesses to identify, evaluate and compare investment opportunities that align with official spatial strategies
We deliver current information and analysis on a single platform, incorporating data from over thirty qualified sources
OneCity can be integrated into Local Authority GIS systems, to streamline and support land use planning
