Smart city search engine

Researchers at the University of Glasgow are working on an urban search engine that will interrogate sensors and answer questions such as: “How crowded is the city centre?’ Sensors attached to traffic lights, lamp-posts and other city landmarks will create a vast   amount of data and the hope is that citizens will make use of it to improve city life. The plan is to test the search engine in a real city by 2014. The project is part of a European-funded initiative, known as Smart (“search engine for multimedia environment-generated content’), which aims to create a system for internet users to search and analyse data from sensors.
