Key points from the meeting are as follows:

  • Revision of work plan due to delays in producing sensors. It was realised that we could not conduct field experiments during the 2016-17 haze season as our sensor design was not yet stable.
  • Expected to have sensors ready for test under controlled environment in early 2017.
  • Production of sensors will follow.
  • Lab tests to be conducted at UPMC and AIT.
  • University of the Philippines Los Baños would like to run experiments in metro Manila with tall building. Malaysia will run experiments in buses in Kuala Lumpur.
  • Presentations and discussions with Dr. Isabella Annesi-Maesano by AIT students.
  • The first prototype of our sensor was demonstrated at the meeting.
  • Mr. Davide Aguiari, Mr. Preechai and Mr. Sarat Yoowattana (AIT PhD Student) were engaged in sensor and PCB design with Prof. Giovanni Pau.
