The objective of this research paper is to describe the system architecture for an urban roadside automatic mist-generating system. Its primary purpose is to mitigate particulate matter especially PM2.5–10. In this paper, four graphs are provided to exhibit the constituent elements of this system. This paper also discusses the functional extensions of this system for alternative uses in civil engineering which include winter road deicing and desnowing with added salt; clean-up of street dust…

iSpray: Reducing Urban Air Pollution with Intelligent Water Spraying
TLDR
iSpray, the first-of-its-kind data analytics engine for fine-grained water spraying at key urban areas via cost-effective water spraying, combines domain knowledge with machine learning to profile and model how water spraying affects pollution concentrations in time and space.

Can chunking reduce syntactic complexity of natural languages?
Natural language is a complex adaptive system with multiple levels. The hierarchical structure may have much to do with the complexity of language. Dependency Distance has been invoked to explain
iSpray
TLDR
In-field evaluations show that compared with scheduling based on real-time pollution concentrations, iSpray reduces the total sprayer switch-on time by 32%, equivalent to 1, 782 m3 water and 18, 262 kWh electricity in the deployment, while decreasing the days of poor air quality at key spots by up to 16%.

TLDR
The air basin between the Mississippi River and the bluff in Illinois is of particular interest for this report because of its frequent pattern of air circulation, which forms a horizontal semi-vortex along the river, concentrating the heavier particulates near East St. Louis and Granite City.
