SMART Digital Villages in Forth Valley & Lomond

Forth Valley and Lomond LEADER Local Action Group held a workshop on 8th March to highlight work being done by the SMART Digital Villages Network. This includes a range of sensors measuring a number of environmental factors including air quality, weather and traffic flow.

Thornhill’s sensors are on top of the Masonic Hall. You can see an example of the data received so far below. You can access a recording of the workshop here.
