Smart Sensors / Smart Cities by Dr. Lakshmi Prayaga, University of West Florida
February 23, 2019
IHMC’s February Science Saturday was about “Smart Sensors” and was presented by Dr. Lakshmi Prayaga and her colleagues from the University of West Florida. Students in grades 3 and 4 attended at 9 am; 5th and 6th graders attended at 11. Students in both sessions experimented with image recognition software that performed simple edge detection to identify shapes on a video stream, and with sensors that detected and quantified moisture in soil. Both of these technologies might be elements of future smart cities. High school volunteers assisted.
