Developed in partnership with Intel, AAEON Technology, and utilising AWS' web and cloud hosting expertise, Cornwall Council has deployed SSE Energy Solutions' Sentinel optical sensor to gather smarter data to support behavioural change and economic growth in the county.
Cornwall Council’s Smart Kernow project harnesses smart technology to support behavioural change and economic growth in the county. SSE Energy Solutions has been a strategic partner of Cornwall Council for over 15 years, and our Sentinel sensor is key to safer, cleaner, vibrant cities and places in the coming years.
SSE has deployed two Sentinel sensors to monitor the flow of people, traffic, and air quality in the vicinity of Lemon Quay, Truro. Cornwall Council can now access real-time and actionable data on visitor flow, air quality, dwell time to make informed policy decisions to revitalise the high street, improve air quality, and the overall health and wellbeing of residents.
Sentinel can be deployed in a multitude of settings. AI is used to train the sensor to classify and count whatever is in its field of vision from multimodal transport analysis, EV car charging hubs to biodiversity net-gain.
