The project brings together a range of journalism industry expertise, multidisciplinary academic partners spanning innovation, internet of things, journalism, engineering and autonomous systems with communities and public bodies. This group identify key issues, and then develop specialist, bespoke sensor kits that respond to, or add value to, local issues via a co-creation methodology. We will test the premise that by co-creating data collection tools, with a high level of sensor and engineering capability, the products will be highly relevant and suitable to the user groups i.e. journalists and their communities.
