Air Quality Radar
Client: Matthew Smith, Microsoft <Matthew.Smith@microsoft.com>
Rain radar apps are familiar and popular - allowing people to plan their activities by approaching rain. This project will create the first “air radar” that uses monitoring of multiple air quality parameters to predict air movement and local variations in pollution. We can provide access to recordings of air quality data streams from multiple locations around Cambridge, and also the Microsoft Cortana Intelligence Suite under Azure. You should use machine learning techniques to predict what happens next. This will involve collecting and integrating other data such as time of day, traffic movements, temperature, wind speed and other factors. Your current situation maps and future trend predictions should be useful not only to cyclists and residents, but to business analysts and city planners concerned with future environmental health.
