The student-led startup, Cozin, is all about saving lives. 3 billion people in the world are exposed to lethal gases from solid fuel. This is gases that might be hard to detect, but technology can help. Cozin is a new kind of sensor which can be installed in homes and can detect dangerous levels of carbon dioxide in the air. The sensors can be set up in networks and warn through wearables, toys or other ways.
In this episode we talk with Assistant Professor George Anthony Giannoumis and master student Musoro King Asa Tamugri about the Cozin project, how it all got started, how it is build on universal design principles, how it is being developed and the future of Cozin.
