OpenEars is a fact!

Breaking news: We open sourced our Sound Event Recognition sensor and started working with IoT Sensemakers Amsterdam to boost its development and use.

The second development night already (yesterday), participants managed to produce their first fully operational copy.

In the city jungle of Amsterdam we’ll be using OpenEars this summer to assess Noise Pollution. In the process we’ll dummy proof the sensor and make it more energy efficient.

Once we’ve achieved that, OpenEars will be provided to rangers working in the actual wilderness to protect endangered species like elephant, rhino and tigers.

People interested to help us develop the sensor, can contact me or get the code from (you may have to use Google Translate, as some instructions are still in Dutch ;-)
