Testing of the air quality measurement device prototype in Cali, Colombia

The CAMoN team in Colombia has been carrying out tests in the streets of Cali with the air quality measurement device prototype sent from Europe, developed by the CAMoN team in Spain.
The prototype is contained in a box, which allows the measurement of various polluting gases present in the environment such as: carbon dioxide, ozone, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide.
In the tests, main streets were crossed with the prototype such as 5th Street, the Avenida de los Cerros, Simón Bolívar Highway or the main road of Yumbo, among others. In this process, data was generated for further analysis. This tour was conducted by car and allowed us to know the challenges we face with the design and portability in the improvement process of the air quality measurement device.
The operation of the prototype was successful and met expectations. In the coming weeks we will continue with the tests in […]

Co-Creation Group work

On March 5th, the CAMoN team in Colombia organized the event with one of the co-creation groups on the Santiago de Cali University campus.

The dynamics consisted of simulating the city of Santiago de Cali within the university, in order to find a set of clues and generate a series of environmental reports with the CAMoN app according to the track found. This way, players could interact with the mobile application.

The activities were guided by a gincana that motivated people creativity, which allowed people express their ideas easily through the game.

Part of the strategies of the work with the co-creation group were to motivate the imagination, ingenuity, innovation and creativity with the aim of knowing the expectations of the users with the app.

One of the biggest challenges was knowing the expectations of the users and inviting the end user to improve the app usability. In this sense, after finishing the activity, the […]
