Intel Lab’s pollution sampling project, dubbed Common Sense, aims to create hundreds of mobile air-monitoring stations that could help capture air samples and measure pollution levels at various locations. These components could be integrated into cell phones and would work in two ways. The first scenario would have folks use it intentionally by going out and gathering data at certain locations while the other method would be to allow it run passively by letting the sensor collect data whenever the phone is turned on. The development of a cell phone to capture particulate matter is still in the initial phases of its development, but let’s see what the future holds for us.
