In Delhi, the air pollution level has been hopping up gradually due to the smoke generated from the burning of stubble in nearby agricultural areas. The students of Bharti Vidyapeeth College designed an Android app that measures the air quality of your region. They were awarded by US-based Marconi Society with a price for the same.
The undergraduate students are Kanishk Jeet, Tanmay Srivastava and Prerna Khanna who together won Rs 1,09,500 in a contest organized in India and sponsored by the Society under its Celestini Programme.
The App named ‘Air Cognizer‘ uses your smartphone’s camera to take images in which half of the image must cover the sky region. After that, image processing takes place where the role of machine learning comes into play which estimates and let you know the Air Quality Index in a specific area. It is a real-time air quality checker which is available at Google play store. Here is the Download link of the app.
