Air quality monitoring has undergone remarkable changes in the last decade. The technology has moved from individual sampling protocols to continuous monitoring and from expensive industrial tools to consumer-grade gadgets accessible to citizen groups.
At Intel, in the United States, Dr Dawn Nafus, was part of a research project which explored new ways of collecting air quality data in a community bordering a major industrial corridor in the US.
The researchers found that, far from making it easier to identify problematic air pollution, the new sensing capabilities created a different type of data that challenges commonplace practices of meaning-making and reorients notions of what it looks like to make a claim about toxic air exposure.
