One of the aims of Reading Hydro is also to be able to provide useful and educational data and resources to the local community (and wider).
We’re excited to be linking up with The Things Network Reading to start to explore opportunities to do this at the site, that then may be integrated into our website, a dashboard and perhaps even have live visible data at the lock.
If you’re interested to support or find out more, then join us this Sunday, the 29th of October at 10am down at Caversham Lock for our first Field Research Trip to explore possibilities as well as identify challenges.
This will be followed by coffee and planning close by in Caversham. We’ll confirm where we end up to those that want to join later on our twitter feed – @rdghydro
If you are interested or have ideas already in how IoT can be applied to a community hydroelectric project (or even want to find out more about the Internet of Things or Hydro electric generation) then please join us – the more the merrier !
You can also indicate if you’ll be joining here so we know who to look out for.
