eMission Impossible: Detecting Pollution with Laser Light
Division:Health Sciences / Environmental Innovation
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:Vancouver, BC

Abstract:A prototype device that detects water pollution using laser light is built. It utilizes a physical principle of light scattering off small particles. A cheap webcam, controlled by computer, takes an image of scattered light. Software program analyzes the image and decides whether to trigger a pollution alarm. In the future, the device will be expanded to detect pollution in air and identify pollutants.
