A talk about the development of the SheffSense air pollution monitoring system and website. SheffSense is part of an ambitious project to make pollution data easier to access and understand. Presented by Damien Bemben and Rohit Chakraborty.

The project

If someone handed you a glass of brown water, you wouldn’t drink it. Unfortunately, when it comes to the air we breathe, it’s not that simple. We only notice poor quality or polluted air when it starts to affect our health. But by that time it’s too late.

Invisible Pollution is a digital climate and pollution monitor that makes poor quality polluted air visible. Devised by masters student Damian Bemben (Computer Science), it’s the perfect example of how digital technology can make the world a better place.

The exhibition is situated in Futurecade, available to view both online and in person at the Millennium Gallery.
