This project focuses on collecting and presenting data. We are focusing on collecting data from CRITICAL MASS.
CRITICAL MASS is a bicycling event typically held on the last Friday of every month in over 300 cities around the world. While the ride was originally founded in 1992 in San Francisco with the idea of drawing attention to how unfriendly the city was to cyclists,the leaderless structure of Critical Mass makes it impossible to assign it any one specific goal. In fact, the purpose of Critical Mass is not formalized beyond the direct action of meeting at a set location and time and traveling as a group through city or town streets on bikes.
The aim is to gather data from the critical mass happening this 26 of June here in Atlanta.
How are we going to do it ??
Instrumenting the bike with:
Instrumenting the bikers with:
Heart rate sensors
Media used to gather data :
Video surveillance cameras
My name is David Angulo Rubio, I am a senior student at FAMU. I am a member of the Robotic Team that won the Pre-Tapia competition at Spelman on March 2009. I got this internship thanks to the help of Dr. Clement Allen (Robotic Team’s advisor).
The research at the Public Design Workshop directed by Dr. Carl DiSalvo covers different areas in which we will be working for these 10 weeks here at Georgia Tech. The projects are divided in a youth and art robotics workshop, designing interfaces and visualizations for community-collected sensor data, and a robotic art workshop with local artists.
