Today, EPA and the National Institutes of Health announced the winner of the My Air, My Health Challenge. The Challenge called upon innovators nationwide to design a small, low-cost sensor that integrates air quality measurements with related health data, such as heart rate and breathing.
From a collection of proposals, four finalists were selected in November 2012 to move to the second phase of the competition that involved the development of working prototypes. Three finalists successfully designed prototypes, and the winner was announced this morning at Health Datapalooza IV.
