Adam Laskowitz demonstrates smartphone air quality app

"This simulation shows how you might use air quality monitoring when you're outside going for a run or taking your kid to school," said Adam Laskowitz, a researcher Intel Labs.

Smartphone Gives Turn by Turn Directions to Cleaner Air

Experimental mobile app helps people plot pollution-free path.

 

A new demonstration smartphone app that taps into real-time air quality data could point people to the most pollution-free route to their destination.

 

Using an app on this smartphone that flashes green, yellow or red arrows to indicate the air quality in each direction, Adam Laskowitz navigates though a video simulation of a running course on the streets of a neighborhood in Portland, Ore.

 

The demonstration, one of many at the annual Research at Intel event in San Francisco, has a game-like quality, but Laskowitz, a researcher Intel Labs, says technology could be a game changer for people living with allergies or asthma.

 

"This simulation shows how you might use air quality monitoring when you're outside going for a run or taking your kid to school," said Laskowitz.
