2008-11.04 Citizen Science

  1. 1. Citizen Science: Enabling Participatory Urbanism Paul Aoki, R.J. Honicky, Alan Mainwaring, Chris Myers, Eric Paulos, Sushmita Subramanian, and Allison Woodruff Demonstartion Submission UbiComp , September 2008 (to appear)
  2. 2. Motivation <ul><li>Mobile phone usage </li></ul><ul><ul><li>communication tool > networked mobile personal measurement instrument </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Real-time environmental data </li></ul><ul><li>Mobile phone can sense and tell us what? </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Look around you right now </li></ul>Were pesticides used on these fruits? Is the noise level safe here?   Is this water safe to drink? How healthy is the air I'm breathing ? How hot is it?
  4. 4. Motivation <ul><li>Temperature, humidity, AQI (averaging) </li></ul><ul><li>Real-time pollen counts </li></ul><ul><li>Own actual decibel measurements </li></ul>
  5. 5. Introduction <ul><li>Facts about our future mobile phones: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>more sensing and processing capabilities </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>contribute and collective </li></ul></ul><ul><li>data collector </li></ul>
  6. 6. Study 1: Perceptions Of Air Quality <ul><li>People's perceptions of air quality </li></ul><ul><li>12 residents (9M/3F 23-56 years old) </li></ul><ul><li>Several insights </li></ul><ul><li>None of the participants had a clear understanding </li></ul><ul><li>don't trust the government </li></ul>
  7. 7. Study 1: Perceptions Of Air Quality <ul><li>Ergo: Air Quality On-the-Go </li></ul>Air Quality Index Bakersfield, CA Currently @3:00 PM = 47 (GOOD) Ozone 6/4: 95 (MODERATE) Ozone 6/5: 124 (UNHEALTHY FOR SENSITIVE PEOPLE) Ozone
  8. 8. Study 2: Air Quality Sensing Field Study <ul><li>7 taxi drivers and 3 students in Accra </li></ul><ul><li>For Taxi For student </li></ul>GPS logger carbon monoxide sensor
  9. 9. Study 2: Air Quality Sensing Field Study
  10. 10. Research Prototype Platforms <ul><li>TI MSP430 microcontroller </li></ul><ul><li>carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxide (NOx), and ozone (O3) gas sensors as well as temperature, relative humidity, and motion (3D accelerometer) sensors </li></ul>
  11. 11. Research Prototype Platforms GOIN' MOBILE: THE STREET SWEEPER DEPLOYMENT' GOIN ' Street Sweeper gas sensor board, a fan main board and a mobile phone
  12. 12. Research Prototype Platforms
  13. 13. AQI Maroon Hazardous 301 to 500 Purple Very Unhealthy 201 to 300 Red Unhealthy 151 to 200 Orange Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups 101 to 150 Yellow Moderate 51 to 100 Green Good 0 to 50 ...as symbolized by this color: ...air quality conditions are: When the AQI is in this range: Colors Levels of Health Concern Air Quality Index (AQI) Values
  14. 14. sketched <ul><li>Bluetooth headsets </li></ul><ul><li>Interacting With Air Quality Measurements </li></ul>
  15. 15. Interacting With Air Quality Measurements
  16. 16. Interacting With Air Quality Measurements
  17. 17. Interacting With Air Quality Measurements
  18. 18. Conclusion <ul><li>Communication tool to that of a sensor rich personal measurement instrument </li></ul><ul><li>citizen science </li></ul>
