The university's Institute for Software Integrated Systems, with the support of a $70,000 grant from Microsoft, plans to create a system that will construct a detailed picture of the air quality of large metropolitan areas. The research team is building five prototype vehicle-mounted sensors to sample pollutants every few seconds. When the system contacts a WiFi hotspot, it will upload its data to a SensorMap portal, where the information is to be displayed.
