Adopt a Sensor

  • Project typeTechnology
  • Project scheduleThis pilot project will run for two years

Lake Macquarie City Council and the University of Technology Sydney are running the Adopt a Sensor pilot project in the Charlestown Innovation Precinct (ChIP).

The aim of the project is to help gather new information about how our suburbs and neighbourhoods perform in times of extreme climate events. This information will then guide improvements to the comfort, safety and sustainability of our City.

Sensors adopted by the community will be part of a wider deployment of more than 80 temperature and humidity monitoring devices across Charlestown and Speers Point as part of the Smart Liveable Neighbourhoods project. The data from these devices will be used to broaden our understanding of how microclimates correspond with the built and natural environments.
