Open HW/SW Air Quality Monitor project

When’s the next DMS Civic Hacking meeting? I’d like to pitch involvement in a project I’m working on with the Cities of Irving and Denton and a Denton civic hacking group (and potentially some other interested parties). We’re looking at developing the hardware/software to support a citizen science program for monitoring local air quality (something like what the Texas Stream Team currently does for monitoring water quality). There’s hardware work with micros (Raspberry Pi or Arduinos), a variety of sensors, maybe solar/battery power, WiFi or cellular radios, and software at both ends (client nodes and data repository). There’s no budget, it’s all strictly DIY for now. Sound interesting to anyone?
