Airborne particulate matter is a serious threat to both our health and the environment. It is also the primary cause for visibility degradation in urban metropolitan areas. We present the design, implementation, and evaluation of an optical technique to measure visibility using commodity cameras and other sensors commonly found on mobile phones. The user takes a picture of the sky which is tagged with location, orientation, and time data and transfered to a backend server. Visibility is… CONTINUE READING
