The Responsible Sensing Toolkit

Featured image

As societal values change and the deployment of sensing technology becomes more ubiquitous, what are our digital rights in a 21st-century city?  This dilemma is forcing municipalities to make difficult decisions about practice versus the policy of collecting data from public space. In collaboration with the City of Amsterdam, The City Innovation Exchange Lab (CITIXL) has created the Responsible Sensing Toolkit -  a six-step process to help navigate this new landscape in a fast and effective way. The toolkit was co-designed by experienced city innovators to empower municipalities, organisations, and communities to implement open and inclusive sensing solutions for our 21st-century cities.
    Currently in Beta, we are testing the toolkit with various organisations and cities to effectively move from theory to practice by applying the framework to sensing projects in progress. To keep updated, visit the Responsible Sensing Toolkit page and subscribe to the mailing list.

Project phase

Beta

What is the goal of the project?

To provide city innovators with a framework for responsible and ethical sensing projects.

What is the result of the project?

Promoting digital rights, social values, and data ethics for sensing projects in public spaces.

Who initiated the project and which organizations are involved?

The City Innovation Exchange Lab, the City of Amsterdam CTO office, AMS Responsible Sensing Lab and multiple testing partners.

What is the next step?

This is the second phase of the Toolkit development. We are exploring the third phase - to create an interactive platform that could be used by any city.

What can other cities learn from your project?

The toolkit was co-designed by experienced city innovators to help municipalities, organisations, and communities implement ethical, open, and inclusive sensing solutions for our 21st-century cities.
