An IoT approach to characterising biodiversity of green spaces for planetary health

In this project, we aimed to explore IoT-enabled mechanisms that can be used to capture information on greenspace biodiversity specifically looking at sound-scape information. IoT-enabled mechanisms have the potential to significantly reduce the costs of data collection as well as leveraging citizen science, so allowing local governments to incorporate biodiversity into planning and design of green spaces.
