Our Urban Sensing & Analytics research explores how sensing technologies can enhance traditional urban research and how new data analytics methods can be used to solve urban challenges.

The overall aim of this theme is to collect higher quality new forms of urban big data via sensing technologies and use advanced analytical methodologies to analyse this data to better inform urban policies.
