Asthma Triggers

AT&T researchers have created hardware that can identify triggers and check the quality of air with the goal to prevent asthma attacks. A sensor called Asthma Triggers monitors the environment for harmful chemicals and allergens, which can warn a patient if a location is not safe. The sensor has Zigbee wireless connectivity, and can send information to a mobile device or other locations using AT&T's cloud service. AT&T researcher Katie Hanson, an asthma patient herself, calls the sensor a small step in reducing instances of asthma attacks and hospital visits.
