CamBike Update: 22 August 2018

The CamBike Team

It’s been an intense week for the CamBike Team, with a presentation at the Department and distribution of more sensors to excited volunteers. Read on to learn more!

Distribution: preliminary data and call for action

The team is happy to present some preliminary data from our first volunteers! There will be 40 devices ready to give out starting from next Monday. If you want to try out a sensor, just sign up via this form: https://goo.gl/forms/esNncLXT2tRkQULg2.

Final presentation: impressions and received feedback

The team would like to thank everyone who came to the presentation last Friday. To see what happened, you can watch the talk (and Q&A) on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0vhAq0Hn8HY. The feedback received was consistently positive and the CamBike team hopes you will enjoy it as well!

Casing: a design to show off

Inspired by the visiting artist’s ‘future vision’, the team got to work to design an affordable but durable casing. Laser-cutting was chosen as a scalable method that can work with cheap wooden and acrylic materials. The result is a waterproof (but not airtight) box that shows off the custom-made electronics inside!

What’s next? For now, holiday season…

After 10 very intense weeks, the team deserves a short break. The members will start to depart home at the end of this week. The team will come back to you with more news in two weeks. Don’t worry, there will be air quality data from at least 7 countries to make up for it!
