You can find a lot of projects that use the Arduino micro-controller, but it is rare to find such a large project like “Making Sense of Space”. It uses light, temperature, CO2, and several other types of sensors to gather data about the work environment.

BOP – Making Sense of Space was a £1 million, two-year, multidisciplinary project, funded by the UK government’s Technology Strategy Board. It investigated how ubiquitous computing, using wireless sensor networks (WSN), could be used to create a better understanding of the creative workplace. The project ended in December last year but I am still [finalising] the last few *project management* items.
