DEPLOYMENT AND REACTION
The final stage of an Urban Probe is the actual introduction of the artifact into an urban landscape. The means of achieving this may vary depending on the probe. For example, it may be handing out 100 objects with RFID tags and a public kiosk reader, projecting images on a passing bus, or deploying several new wireless access points within a subway car. Observation is important at this stage in gauging the reaction and interaction of people and place with the new artifact. Questionnaires and surveys are encouraged to collect data of the deployment as well as other techniques such as video documentation.
