Purifying Cities, Unifying Communities
This project stems from an interest in measuring and mapping air quality patterns in Dubai, with a higher definition than the static station method. The project consists of a wearable micro-device called Airsense, that people can use to track the air quality around them in real time as they move through their daily activities. The device is connected to an application that aggregates the data distinguishing indoor and outdoor environments using object recognition algorithms.
