Join us at the Center for Civic Innovation for an evening of “show-and-tell” with Free and Open Source projects! For our second meeting, we will discuss the design, deployment, and expansion of a LoRa network for the city of Charlottesville. We will present briefly on the state-of-the-art in community-driven environmental monitoring with open hardware and low-cost sensors, and showcase one of the projects we have been conducting for Smart Cville. We will debate technical issues and solutions for environmental sensing, but everyone is welcome to join! This event is co-hosted by the School of Data Science at University of Virginia.
