About this event

"Bristol Is Open" is a joint venture between the University of Bristol and Bristol City Council, delivering research and development initiatives that contribute to the development of a smart city and the 'Internet of Things'.

Small sensors, including the smart phones and GPS devices of willing participants, will supply the three new fast networks in the centre of Bristol, with information about many aspects of city life, including energy, air quality and traffic flows. A city operating system will dynamically host this machine-to-machine communication, allowing the development of a wide range of applications.
