Do-it-yourself technologies: creating your own instruments for citizen environmental monitoring

AutorPiera, Jaume

CitaciónAbstract Book 6th Living Knowledge Conference: 124 (2014)
ResumenThe great technological advances in embedded systems and sensor have increased the interest of people in creating their own instrumentation equipment. One of the main advantage of this new technology, known as DIY (Do-It-Yourself), is that DIY developers may share easily the collected data with the community by using existing communication channels (social media, mobile devices, ...). DIY is one of the key technologies to build Citizens' Observatories In the framework of environmental monitoring based on Citizens' Observatories, the Citclops European project aims to develop systems to retrieve and use environmental data (water quality) by using low-cost sensors combined with contextual information. Given the ubiquity of mobile devices and the high density of people in coastal areas, environmental monitoring based on Citizens' Observatories can achieve an unprecedented level of coverage in both space and time for observing events of interest in the, usually complex, coastal environments. The proposed DIY technology, a low cost buoy that measures water transparency, is based on open-source electronics, easy-to-use hardware and software which facilitate the citizens' engagement in the scientific monitoring and management of the marine ecosystem
