London Living Lab

WHAT does the project do?

The London Living Labs is a city scale environment that is instrumented to enable experiments to be carried out in situ. It has been established by Intel, the Future Cities Catapult, researchers at ICRI Cities and a collective of local stakeholders in the city.

The environments include schools, parks and city neighbourhoods, which are instrumented using an Intel Galileo-based end-to-end Internet of Things infrastructure and informed through an ethnographic research process. Our multi-layered, people-centric approach helps us to better understand and design for a range of scenarios and use cases with communities, city officials and stakeholders to help design for the connectedness and sustainability of future cities. The current installation base is 120 gateways servicing about 600 sensor end points.

WHY is the project good for London?

We are exploring how we can we instrument the city without the constraints and cost of a fixed infrastructure.
