Technology that quantifies the physical environment, such as traffic or environmental factors

NYC City Scanner Pilot

Low cost, mobile air quality and other environmental sensors installed on City vehicles. The City Scanner is a low-cost alternative to traditional methods of collecting environmental data. The sensor attaches to the roof of vehicles and collects detailed data at a more geographic level than traditional fixed-position sensors. The City Scanner sensors capture data related to environmental conditions including air quality (particulate matter 1, 2.5, and 10), temperature, humidity, and road conditions in New York City. The solar-powered sensors are removable and do not permanently alter vehicles.

Beijing Air Tracks

The causes and effects of air pollution comprise a complicated chemical recipe that is all too easily reduced to superficial observation (the color of the sky) or an abstract statistical reading from static instruments. In reality, the total experience of a city’s air quality is a combination of highly localized as well as more regional effects that shift in intensity as one moves through an urban landscape.
