SPOTLIGHT: City of Cambridge uses WiFi to monitor weather

Cambridge, MA, in partnership with Harvard University and government contractor and Internet company BBN Technologies, is building a WiFi-based sensor network that will monitor the weather and pollution. Called CitySense, the network will eventually support some 100 sensors around the city, thanks to almost $1 million in funding from the National Science Foundation and additional support from Microsoft. CitySense may eventually support other types of sensors and will be open for use by researchers and computer scientists. Article
