Private, Government Collaboration Advances Air Sensor Technology
Researchers from EPA and Aclima Inc., a San Francisco-based technology company, worked together on a pilot project in Denver, Colorado to assemble a real-time view of pollutant levels and meteorological conditions at the street level. The project involved mapping pollutants measured by three Google Street View cars outfitted with Aclima’s mobile platform of air pollution sensors.
The study even got the attention of The Washington Post’s Capital Weather Gang. Read more about the project in the EPA Science Matters story Private, Government Collaboration Advances Air Sensor Technology.
