QSI Best Application Paper Award

The article "Low-cost coarse airborne particulate matter sensing for indoor occupancy detection", by students Kevin Weekly, Donghyun Rim, and Lin Zhang (visiting scholar from Tsinghua University, Beijing, China), led by Professors Alexandre BayenWilliam Nazaroff, and Costas Spanos won the QSI Best Application Paper Award at the IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering(CASE). The work presented in this article proposes to use a low-cost sensor to infer the local movement of occupants in a corridor by sensing the resuspension of coarse particles. The award was presented to EECS PhD student Kevin Weekly at the CASE Conference in Madison, Wisconsin.
