What if you knew the most populated route for a late night walk? Or which areas to avoid during bad weather? 

Chicago’s new project Array of Things is hoping to provide residents with that information and more. The urban sensing project was scheduled to launch this summer. We talk with Brenna Berman, commissioner of the Department of Innovation and Technology, about the type of data collected and what’s in store for the future of this project.
