Type of Project


Student Responsibilities

In this position, you will work with a team to: 1) deploy the monitor on light poles at the height of approximately 10 ft. The monitor is powered by solar panel, and no electrical work are needed; 2) test and calibrate the monitor on-site using multiple reference instruments; 3) monitor network health and perform monitor maintenance if needed. Network deployment will start on UCF main campus first. In this position, you will learn the latest technology in air quality monitoring, operations of several research-grade instruments, and data analysis related to air quality measurement.
