OpenDoTT Deployment Dataset: ESR3 Communities and Neighbourhoods

posted on 2022-12-02, 16:48 authored by SARAH KIDENSARAH KIDEN

The overall aim of the PhD is to explore the potential use of Internet of Things (IoT) to support the creation and sustainment of community technology/infrastructure and other publicly shared objects. For the second year, the Dundee West End Community Fridge was considered to allow continuity from the first year.  


The research followed a mixed approach consisting of a prototype and a field visit, that were supplemented using storyboards and a Miro board. 7 UK-based participants contributed to the research through in-person and 2 virtual interviews and workshops. A 5-day field visit was organised to allow in-person participation as online recruitment did not yield many participants.  

This Dataset contains: 

Field notes 

Assorted photographs of the prototypes and other activities 


Sample forms, documents and announcements 

Participant recruitment tools 

Other data related to the research
