The Array of Things is an audacious plan to turn Chicago into a smart city with a remote network of up to 1000 sensors. Anyone can connect up to this network with a smartphone, providing real time data that can be mined by anyone. This can then be used to discover how people use the city, and make it a better place to live and work.
Charlie Catlett is its lead investigator.
