Four students from Dr.B.V Raju Institute of Technology, Narsapur, Medak District, Andhra Pradesh have designed a "Pollution Buster".
The device includes a user module comprising a circuit which has a carbon monoxide sensor, to monitor the vehicle's emission. The receiver module placed at strategic traffic points transmits the registration number of the polluter vehicle to the pollution
control authorities. The team says the concept provides a three day grace period to the motorist to correct pollution levels, before he is reported automatically.
The concept is real time and hence expected to be more effective in checking pollution. The foursome is among the four teams selected from India by Microsoft Sudent challengE 2006.
