Common Sense Air Sensors


Berkeley, California--Researchers at Intel Research and UC Berkeley have been experimenting with mobile air sensors in California in an effort to map air quality in the bay area. We've written about similar efforts before, namely the effort to map air quality with Sensaris sensors in Copenhagen (check out the live feed on the Copenahagen Layer here.), but I like this project because it's been around for a few years. Therefore, you can actually see the ebb and flow of air quality in metropolitan area as populations grow and transport systems change. Check out the youtube video below, it makes the science behind the sensors particularly accessible. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yco5It4r3c&hl=en_US&fs=1&]
