wrote about our Data Sensing
the recent Strata
"Can Arduino devices jam-packed with sensors help you plan your next
conference better? That's what O'Reilly Media is trying to figure out....A
small and simple open-source computer board that can connect to sensors,
the *Arduino* was one of 50 such gadgets that O'Reilly Media, host of the
Strata Conference, planted around the facility. *Sensors* attached to the
Arduinos pick up humidity, motion, sound and temperature data which they
collect and wirelessly send to a *ZigBee* device that uploads it all to an
Amazon Web Services cloud for *real-time visualization* and analysis and
future processing, said tech-book author Alasdair
one of the people behind the project."
