EPA Grant Number: SU835352
Title: Construction Operations Carbon Footprint

The construction industry is a large contributor of greenhouse gas emissions, and will be subject to new EPA air regulations. Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University students are designing a real time system for monitoring emissions from large construction equipment such as bulldozers. Pairing video feeds from a network of installed cameras at a construction site with emissions data, managers will be able to modify construction activities to reduce the carbon footprint.
