As an interesting fact, modern cars contain an increasing number of sensors. They help with parking, tracking blind spots, and helping people keep their distance from the car in front.
A request has been sent to policymakers as well as city and regional government leaders to find out the way in which real-time monitoring of urban greenhouse gases (GHGs) could help them in their measures to address climate change.
Researchers from the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have collaborated to develop a model aiming to assist engineers in creating and selecting the most potential conceptual designs of satellite radar systems.
A civil engineer from the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) is working with a Texas coastal town to create an economical sensor network that will help the community track the effects of climate change.
Though overall air quality in the U.S. has improved dramatically in recent decades, smoke from catastrophic wildfires is now creating spells of extremely hazardous air pollution in the Western U.S. And, while many people have learned to reduce their exposure by staying inside, keeping windows closed and running air filtration systems on smoky days, data remains limited on how well these efforts are paying off.
In a new study, a team of scientists used a low-cost air quality sensor network to map the pollution exposure of residents in real time, for the first time.
Rainforests constitute a robust and natural solution to fight climate change. They provide water filtration and help capture carbon, thereby controlling global temperatures.
Researchers from Skoltech have found a way to help computer vision algorithms process satellite images of the Earth more accurately even with very limited data for training.
Rothamsted Research is the longest-running agricultural research institute in the world, with a history dating back to the middle of the 19th century.
