Dynamic assessment of exposure to air pollution using mobile phone data.
Exposure to air pollution can have major health impacts, such as respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. Traditionally, only the air pollution concentration at the home location is taken into account in health impact assessments and epidemiological studies. Neglecting individual travel patterns can lead to a bias in air pollution exposure assessments.
- Mobile phone tracking: in support of modelling traffic-related air pollution contribution to individual exposure and its implications for public health impact assessment.
- Improving estimates of air pollution exposure through ubiquitous sensing technologies.
- Computer-aided video exposure monitoring.
- Colorimetric monitoring of formaldehyde in indoor environment using built-in camera on mobile phone.
- Usage of social media and smartphone application in assessment of physical and psychological well-being of individuals in times of a major air pollution crisis.
