Centre for Digital Built Britain completed its five-year mission and closed its doors at the end of September 2022

This website remains as a legacy of the achievements of our five-year foundational journey towards a digital built Britain

This project initiated some baseline data gathering and primary analysis of the ways in which off-the-shelf IOT sensors are going to generate and distribute data, the services they will invoke, and the infrastructure dependencies that will thus be taken by deployment and use of such sensors and their supporting services.


We performed some simple analyses to explore the types and rates of data these sensors will generate and distribute, the supporting services they will invoke, and the resulting infrastructure dependencies they imply for digital built Britain. While more detailed analysis clearly needs to be done, on an on-going basis across a much wider range of devices, our preliminary analysis revealed a number of issues, outlined in the final report.


Data analysis


Next Steps

Further testing across a wider range of devices and over a longer timespan would give better data about the ways in which sensors will support a digital built Britain.
