Bluejacking dons use bikes to monitor smog hotspots

22nd September: The Urban Pollution Project, a collaboration between several English universities, is using bicycle-mounted pollution sensors to measure street-by-street carbon monoxide levels. Static pollution sensors can be foxed by tall buildings, wind and other factors. it’s been found that some streets have higher CO1 levels than other streets, even though they have similar traffic levels. Academics text the street pollution levels to members of the public with Bluetooth-enabled phones. Bluetooth is a wireless technology used by phones, PCs and PDAs. This ‘bluejacking’ is to promote a CO1-awareness website and to enlist more volunteers for the project.
