Keep an eye on your forest and share it with the world…
The design of an open source hardware and software DIY forest surveillance kit is one of the ARTiVIS project outcomes. The kit aims to repurposes surveillance technology to bring people and their communities together to protect their forests. The kit is common to all the ARTiVIS projects’ interactive experiences. Resulting video streams and collected data are expected to be uploaded and then become part of the online platform network for crowdsourced surveillance and artistic manipulation purposes.
When available, the kit will also be a seed for community workshops to provide the skills and resources to help deploy new ARTiVIS nodes for artistic experimentation in research centers, festivals, hacklabs and local landmarks.
An ARTiVIS kit is composed of a series of hardware modules that can be chosen from common off-the-shelf parts depending on cost, power, network bandwidth or infrastructure restrictions. These hardware modules are controlled by a set of software modules connected to the ARTiVIS online platform.
