Studies suggest that poor air quality is a major incremental drain on the national economy due to premature death, chronic illnesses, and forest and crop yield damage. With the worsening air quality in urbanised areas including Metro Manila, commuters who get stuck on the road for hours and endure long lines to catch a ride in public transportation are exposed to various kinds of air pollutants. These situations make the sensitive members of the public, e.g. old people, children, and those with respiratory and cardiovascular diseases, more vulnerable to developing physiological problems. The proposed project could provide a parsimonious early-warning mechanism that enables the public to plan their activities within the day or week in advance to reduce their exposure from potential air pollution episodes.
