Sense It is a personal sensor program through which, data and information about the invisible trends and patterns in the day-to-day use of the city can be collected. This can improve decision-making based on specific, proven, real-time needs.

Sense It is part of the OurDublin system, the culmination of our academic year, an ambitious systems solution for the design and delivery of city services. Inspired by global initiatives that empower residents to become more engaged in civic life, we designed OurDublin as a people-powered process, addressing the needs of residents and government, together.

Through an integrated system of three participatory programs (Sense it, See it, and Make it), we leveraged the power of technology to encourage, facilitate and increase public dialogue, deliberation, organization and action around a wide variety of city challenges. Beyond Dublin, we hope this proposal can serve as inspiration for cities around the world, showcasing the power and potential of collaborative city-building.
