CAMBIKE SENSOR

Dear CamBike enthusiasts,

This week we have the latest pictures from the Women in Computing Festival 2018: Her Story for you! We would also like to remind you to register for Sensor’s day 2018 (19th of October).

Distribution

Distribution is ongoing. We are building sensors for you as fast as we can, but it is still a lengthy process. We will let you know as soon as the next batch is rady to hit the road!
If you already have a sensor and experience some problems, just let us know and we will try to fix it. We also heard from some volunteers that SD cards get stolen! We are working on a slightly different casing to avoid this in the future. A temporary fix might be putting tape over the SD card slit so that it is harder for people to identify. Should your SD card get stolen anyway, just let us know, we have some spares.


Women in Computing Festival 2018: Her Story

Today was our first day at the festival and so far it was great fun and very interesting. We talked to groups of girls about CamBike Sensor and our experiences with this sort of project (mostly fun, some serious work is involved, but at the end you have something that looks really simple and is easy to use). We are looking forward for tomorrow!

Impressions from the festival.


Recap: CW unplugged: Megacities

Last week, we presented at the Cambridge Wireless event CW unplugged: Megacities. We got valuable feedback and input. One way to display data more intuitive on a larger scale could involve 2 scalebars. One showing the range that is of interest for, say for example, Cambridge, and another one that goes up to much higher values that can be found in more polluted cities. We are working on implementing this into our plotting algorithm and can hopefully show an example in the next newsletter!


Again: Sensor’s Showcase and Sensor’s day

This year’s student led Sensor CDT PhD Showcase will be held on the 18th of October in Murray Edwards College, Cambridge. Do you have an interesting measurement problem? Have you developed a new technology for which you seek end users? Have you got a technology you seek to commercialise? Have you made a fundamental discovery that enables or requires a new mode of measurement? Come along and discuss with expert peers from a range of disciplines and backgrounds. Registration ist still open! More information at https://cdt.sensors.cam.ac.uk/events/2018-sensor-cdt-phd-showcase.
On the following day, we will also present at the one-day Sensor’s day conference, organised by the Sensor CDT, showcasing highlights of sensor related research. Sensor’s Day 2018 will take place on Friday 19 October 2018 at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. The conference will cover sensor technologies and applications across the field, with talks from academia and industry. Registration for the Sensor’s day 2018 is open as well! Find more information at https://cdt.sensors.cam.ac.uk/events/sensors-day-2018 - we hope to see you there!


What’s next?

We will focus on distribution as soon as possible, but first we want to present the current data at Sensor’s Day and we hope to see some of you either at the 18th or 19th of October!

Until next time,

The CamBike Sensor Team
