Everyone in the world today has a smart phone, and we can get a lot of information through smart phones, such as weather forecasts, earthquake warnings, and so on.
Today, 3trivia shared with trivia lovers about how smart phones can help us live a healthier and happier life. The topic of this issue is Pollution Monitors.
Scientists from the University of California have developed a small smartphone add-on for monitoring air pollution. The system uses an app called CitiSense to collect data from the sensors and allows a picture of air quality to be built. This can then be viewed not just by those with the sensors, but by other users as well. Asthmatics, for example, can figure out if they should avoid a certain area that day. It also allows scientists to monitor pollution in greater detail. In San Diego, where the first trials were carried out, there are only 10 traditional stations monitoring pollution. Researchers say that if only 100 of the area’s 3.1 million residents used the device, there would be a wealth of data that is otherwise impossible to gather.
