Develop an app or platform to crowd-source information for comparing changes in environmental factors, such as temperature, relative humidity, air pollution, with occurrence of symptoms of allergies and respiratory diseases. Create tools for public entry and grading of symptoms, including but not limited to cough, shortness of breath, wheezing, sneezing, nasal obstruction, itchy eyes; and geographic mapping of symptom frequency and intensity. Create a platform for comparison of symptom map with NASA provided data, with visualization options for web and/or smart phone.
We,as a team,decided to program a standalone Arduino Uno to
monitor different real time air parameters. This will be made possible using
different sensors like temperature sensor,humidity and air pollution. The data
taken from the measurements will be saved on an online server.The information
can be updated in different time intervals.
Along with it, we will develop an app called Bio-Earth that will have two
different categories. The first one,will allow the user to get information
about the exact location of the nearest Arduino Station and show the readings
about the air parameters,while the second category will allow the user to see
the whereabouts of the other mini-weather stations and get information from
them,also give warnings about the allergies and diseases that can be caused by
those weather conditions.
In the future,these Arduino stations can become handheld and moveable,to fit
in our pockets and can be powered via a micro USB connection with the
DHT11 Temperature and Humidity Sensor
MQ135 Air Pollution Sensor
Bio-Earth (designed using Android Studio)
