As embedded systems are becoming smaller, cheaper and more powerful, it is getting easier to bridge the gap between the physical and the digital world. We are now living in increasingly data-rich environments, largely due to the growing number of connected “things” we interact with on a daily basis. The available data can be used to better understand city dynamics and improve the quality of life we have. Projects such as the Array of things and Sense your City use DIY sensors to provide citizens with information about their surroundings.

Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Beagle Bone are among the most popular open-source hardware platforms that provide a great starting point for beginners.
