As the availability of and interest in small personal air sensors continues to grow, careful study design is important for ensuring that quality data are collected. STI’s Tim Dye, Ashley Graham, and Hilary Hafner described important steps to follow when designing sensor studies in an article published in the November 2016 issue of EM Magazine. The article highlights tips and considerations for selecting the right sensor system for a study, properly siting the sensors, and collecting, troubleshooting, and understanding the data.

STI is at the forefront of evaluating and deploying new sensor technology, and our studies range from industrial to public applications. We recently deployed PM sensors to monitor dust from agricultural sources in southern California as part of a dust-warning system for Santa Barbara County. STI also developed the Kids Making Sense STEM education program, which aims to teach students about air quality using personal air sensors.
