Purdue University Develops Simple Dust Monitoring App


A research team led by Dr. Rose Ambrose has developed a mobile app using a smartphone camera to image and quantify atmospheric dust levels.  Technology using laser detection is incompatible with rapid screening of workplace environments and livestock buildings.    

The mobile app created by the Purdue University team uses a smartphone camera to image and record dust levels with acceptable accuracy. Portability and speed are obvious advantages with using a smartphone.  It is hoped that the technology will be commercialized since it had direct application in feed mills and poultry houses where issues of both flock and worker health are concerned.
