Thingy and Sidewalk for Wildfire Smoke and Air Quality

Today we are excited to announce a proof of concept with the Amazon Sidewalk team. When we build the first Thingy AQ sensor in 2017 for the EPA’s “Wildfire Sensors Challenge” one of the key aims was solving for connectivity in remote locations while keeping the sensor lightweight and battery powered. It was built for

Senet teams up with Thingy IOT

Senet and Thingy have teamed up to deliver #LoRaWAN network services to monitor wildfires and air quality across the Western US. With this new Senet partnership, we will be extending our Thingy AQ sensor deployment and LoRaWAN networks into new areas down the West Coast. We are excited to see what we can do together to better inform the public and

USDA NIFA grant for researching Wine Smoke Taint

Do you love your wine?? We spent the majority of this past summer in vineyards down the West coast with our Thingy AQ sensors chasing wildfire smoke in preparation for this massive research project 🙂 Thank you to the US Department of Agriculture, Washington State University, Oregon State University, and UC Davis for partnering with

EPA Expands Air Monitoring Capabilities with Thingy AQ

When the wildfires hit, we will be ready! Excited to be collaborating with the EPA on their WSMART program with our Thingy AQ sensors on the frontline. We designed and built a new portable Air Quality Monitoring System using Thingy AQ sensors and LoRaWAN connectivity that will be loaned out to agencies who need quick

Second Place in the EPA Wildfire Sensors Chellenge!

Shout out to the winners of our #WildlandFireSensors Challenge who advanced new and innovative technologies to monitor air pollutants from smoke during wildland fires: https://t.co/FMCOehtoCY #AirSensorsInternational2018 @SENSIT_USA @thingyiot @KunaK_sensing — US EPA Research (@EPAresearch) September 13, 2018

Advancing Sensor Technology to Monitor Wildfires

Article about the Wildfire Sensor Challenge from the EPA. We are still waiting to hear results but are excited for the opportunity. https://www.epa.gov/sciencematters/advancing-sensor-technology-monitor-wildfires https://www.epa.gov/air-research/wildland-fire-research-protect-health-and-environment

Prototypes Shipped to EPA Labs

For the past 100 hours we have assembled, debugged, rebuilt, designed on the fly, debugged more, cursed hundreds of times, ran out of parts, soldered and soldered and soldered, 3D printed parts on the fly, used every tool in our shop, drank massive amounts of Pepsi Max and down to the wire, literally a small wire, have

Product Design in 3D

Sometimes it takes several iterations to rapidly prototype a product design. For us this is not just packaging or an enclosure but a flow chamber key in the correct measurements of gasses and particulates. Lots of iterations.

Particulate Filter Design

It is the little things that sometimes make a difference. As in little bugs! The smallest of critters entering a small air quality sensor can really mess with the sensitive components for counting smoke particles. We built a low-cost multi-stage filter from 10 to 300 micron that are simple to swap in the field. No

EPA Wildfire Challenge

Proposals submitted to the EPA’s Wildfire Challenge! Next step is finalizing the prototype sensor and gateway for lab trials in January. Stay tuned! https://www.challenge.gov/challenge/wildland-fire-sensors-challenge/
