Young technovators invent device to measure air quality anywhere 12.6.2017 deccanherald.com
While 12-year-olds in Bengaluru spend their free time playing games and catching up on the latest movies, a group of four young innovators has invented a portable device that can measure the air quality of a place with the click of a button. AirEye is an air quality monitoring device that measures the quality of air through the sensors attached to it. It displays the pollutants in the air on a small LCD screen attached to it. The screen changes colour based on the intensity of the pollutants present in the air and rates them as good or bad. For example, the screen turns light green if the air quality is good and turns deep red if the quality is very bad. It also stores this information in the form of a text file for future reference. Amulya Doss, Amisha Pai, Arnav Mayur and Sreysht Prakash from the National Academy For Learning (NAFL) came up with the idea as they wanted to make a positive change by providing solutions to pressing issues. "We wanted to do our bit for the environment. There are a lot of ...
