The air monitoring world is moving towards the use of low-cost sensors to capture air quality data. These devices often provide data in minutes or seconds, and finding the useful information from such a massive data source is a big challenge. The end goal would be to integrate low cost sensors into a network to quickly inform District residents if/when there are air quality hazards.
Our leadership team is thrilled with the results! We were able to successfully identify three winning solutions. The diversity of the innovators was so refreshing, we get how our solutions can literally live anywhere in the world.
