The Tomorrow Foundation is grateful to the UofA’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, particularly the students, and Professor Knudsen, for giving them the opportunity to work with these talented students. Deploying this traffic counter at community scientist locations, along with a low-cost air quality monitor, is going to help communities further understand the relationship between vehicle emissions, trees, and air quality. The Tomorrow Foundation can’t wait to get them out there!
If you are interested in staying updated or getting involved, the Tomorrow Foundation would love to hear from you! A workshop open to community scientists of all ages and abilities to build their own traffic counter is planned for late fall. The traffic counters will be installed in locations where traffic and air quality is of interest - this could be community halls, schools, or even private condos/houses.
