PlanEt – Can data from plants help us to increase our city resilience?
PlanEt is a digital device for collecting and visualising biological data from plants. Plants have incredible environmental sensing properties with ability to process data from multiplied sources. By using plants as sensors we can gain much clearer and better understanding of the current conditions of our environment, particularly important in the context of climate change. PlanEt promotes the notion of plants as sensors and is an open source technology – free and available to everyone, encouraging users to learn and understand the role of plants in our city, share valuable data to an online platform and build a collective knowledge of our immediate living environment.
Kasia Molga and Cyril Shing will produce an affordable “plug & play” version of PlanEt, a toolkit for data sharing to easily stream, store and interpret readings from plants and a collective digital map showing information of the plants and its immediate environmental data.
