Internet of Cars Symposium

24 September 2014, Hartley Suite, University of Southampton 09.30 – 16.30 The Internet of Cars distributed exhibition and symposium is the culmination of a three year research project entitled Sixth Sense Transport and the work of its research team that has developed technologies to help understand the potential for new forms of networked transport. The themes presented in the symposium reflect the researchers’ interests in how networked technology can help inform and reveal new opportunities for travel.   The title of the event “The Internet of Cars”, represents the possible futures that ubiquitous computing may have for new travel opportunities as networked technology finds connections between people, routes and both public and private modes of travel.

CoGet @ Future Everything

We are experimenting with our social logistics software CoGet at Future Everything in March: http://futureeverything.org/events/coget-things-move-people-around/ Based upon the research from the Sixth Sense Transport project that combined social networking with locative media to support collaborative travel practices, CoGet makes a further leap toward a future in which objects borrow our daily routines to move themselves around. We are running a serious of experimental workshops – see below for blurb Sign up here to play: http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/design-informatics-coget-demo-how-to-coget-tickets-10867024563 and this is the link to the CoGet iPhone App: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/coget/id843552747?mt=8   CoGet: Things Move People Around Co-things is a public experiment that uses software to predict where things need to be, and borrows the legs of humans to move them

Internet of Cars: A Distributed Exhibition & Public Talks

Based upon the research context detailed above, the academic team are working with SCAN, an arts/technology agency, to develop an exhibition for May 2014. The aspiration of the exhibition is to offer audiences and communities the potential to rethink how or what a future transport network might be. Another type of robots (preview) by featured artist Stanza Partnering with John Hansard Gallery, Southampton; Bridport Arts Centre; Dorchester Arts Centre; Harbour Lights Cinema, Southampton; and Intech, Winchester, we will present a series of artworks developed specifically by artists who have worked with 6ST data both collected from the project in real time and in the past: Six project proposals have been received from international renowned artists: Polak and van Bekkum will use live feeds from ANPR traffic data and Southampton shipping data to generate a sound landscape that plays the different paces of transport coming in and out, and around the Southampton area.
