The city of Chicago plans to implement a new system monitoring weather,
noise and pollution levels, that is raising privacy concerns among some
civil liberties advocates. Devices will be placed on streetlamps that
will in addition to collecting data on atmospheric conditions, will also
detect the WiFi signals emanating from smartphones users who walked
underneath the sensors
. Although designed to a benign system that will
protect privacy and collect information to be used in urban planning and
other areas, some are concerned about how it may be used in the future.
