Air Monitoring Collaboration for Wellness in Campus Buildings

Air Monitoring Collaboration for Wellness in Campus Buildings

It was announced today that “Technology industry leaders Phizzle, Cisco, Intel, and GlassHouse Systems will work with IDSC to identify ways to use lab-grade cleanroom technology and data analytics in traditional campus buildings, as a way to monitor air quality in real-time.”

Nick TsinoremasThe collaboration leverages innovative IoT edge technologies pioneered in pharmaceutical manufacturing, where safety is a requirement — and will explore ways to ensure student, faculty, and staff wellness on campus.

A global leader in data-intensive research, IDSC is teaming with the technology industry leaders to measure air quality inside campus buildings at levels of granularity typically associated with manufacturing or R&D clean rooms. The companies had previously worked together to develop an automated air quality measurement system for the pharmaceutical industry that was successfully deployed in the University of Miami’s Dr. John T. Macdonald Foundation Biomedical Nanotechnology Institute (BioNIUM) Nanofabrication Facility.

“We have already captured data and found ways to improve building health on campus,” said Nick Tsinoremas, vice provost for research and computing and IDSC founding director at the University of Miami. “It is our intent to build a global data repository and apply deep data science to make indoor air quality as easy to understand as outdoor air quality.”
