Urban Flows Observatory

Urban Metabolism

Urban observatory is a tools designed to help measure the physical metabolism of cities.

While still in the development phase, the Urban Observatory tool will use multiple sensors fixed at specific destinations across a city to help identify the consumption characteristics of a city, showing the social, economic and environmental composition of urban areas. This will help cities monitor, analyse and reduce carbon emissions.
