Students of SUNY Oswego computer science professor James Early (left) work with mobile air-quality sensors they assembled for use on a study-travel experience in London.

From left are Anne Reynolds, a sophomore information science and cognitive science dual major; Melissa King, a graduate student in human-computer interaction who earned her undergraduate degree in May in information science and cognitive science; and Alex Kouthoofd, a sophomore computer science major.

Thanks to support from AT&T for several sensor-related projects, the 15 students assembled the devices on an AirCasting platform and had to problem-solve a number of component changes due to availability of parts, as well as to write a mobile app to operate on iOS devices.

Related projects supported by AT&T include sensors for the college’s Permaculture Garden to gather data on soil characteristics, moisture and temperature, and vehicle-based air quality sensors to deploy on some campus-owned vehicles.
