The National Science Foundation has recently awarded a new $1.2 million grant to UCF to design a smart air quality monitoring network for Orlando. The study team consists of three UCF professors:
Dr. Haofei Yu from Environmental Engineering, Dr. Kelly Stevens and Dr. Thomas Bryer from Public Administration, and two researchers from the University of Massachusetts Lowell and Arizona State University. For this project, the team will design a cyber-secured low-cost air quality monitor, and establish a trustworthy and reliable air quality monitoring network system in and around the City of Orlando. They will use the information collected to help inform the development of pollution mitigation strategies in the region and empower residents through education on air quality and training.
