East Boston Air Quality Project

This short video provides an overview of a project being led by Senior Scientist, Eben Cross and a team of exceptional seniors from Olin College. Together Aerodyne and Olin are combining forces to build a proof-of-concept, low-cost AQ sensor network in East Boston and Winthrop, two communities adjacent to Logan International Airport. The team from Olin, co-advised by Professor Scott Hersey is working closely with Dr. Cross to build out a scale-able, end-to-end database architecture to support distributed measurements of local air pollution. Ultimately, the team hopes to provide a real-time air quality map to enable community members to make more informed data-driven decisions about how to avoid poor air quality in the area.
