WeSenseIt (www.wesenseit.eu) is a multi-site, multi-disciplinary project involving researchers and industrial partners in web technologies, environment, sensing, as well as social media monitoring. Working together with the EU and our sister projects this project aims to develop a new concept of citizen observatories of water creating a two communication channel between authorities and citizens in cooperating to monitor rivers, covering water quality to flooding.
This project directly addresses the challenge for organisations to realise actionable knowledge from an ever increasing flood of potentially valuable data. Currently, the need for skilled ‘data scientists’ is a major bottleneck in this regard. The project will apply existing and develop new technologies to create an ICT tool set which alleviates this bottleneck through provision of a collaborative platform with tools for data integration and analytics deployment which are accessible to non-ICT specialists. The project is funded by Innovate UK, start date 1.10.2014 and has a length of 18 months.
The objective of the SETA project is to provide effective solutions for intelligent and sustainable mobility i.e. the smarter, greener and more efficient movement of people and goods. SETA will provide a radical change from transport as a series of separate modal journeys to an integrated, reactive, intelligent, mobility system. It will provide always-on, pervasive services to citizens and business, as well as decision makers to support safe, sustainable, effective, efficient and resilient mobility. The project lasts 3 years, with €5.5M of funding from EU Horizon 2020 of which €1.2M is for Sheffield. Professor Ciravegna is the project director (2016-2019).
