Intel is focusing its research on resolving the pollution issues by developing a mobile system. Based on this Common Sense Project, the company has devised a model for a novel handy portable device featuring an air quality sensor for assisting the communities to log and evaluate the environmental data satisfying environmental policy and regulation methodologies.
The research team has generated varied experimental models that have been recently utilized on San Francisco street sweepers and in West Oakland air monitoring station. The researchers anticipate that these prototypes will function as integrated environmental sensors in marketable portable systems.
This methodology will improve public awareness.With the advent of smartphones and the application economy structuring the city for connectivity and persistent data input, the mobile devices have also been a part of hi-tech advancements for detecting live environmental data.
A crew of scientists and visualization experts in Madrid has devised a system for inspecting air quality in the city in 2009, by combining an intelligent sensor to log the information and a visualizer to ease the observation process.
