Provo Utah Pollen Samples

These images represent a small portion of the total number of automated pollen, mold and dust samples taken throughout the day in Provo Utah on May 13th, 2019. Our pollen sensor is a device that automates the tedious process of using a microscope to see what is in the air.

As the samples are collected, machine vision (artificial intelligence) looks at the raw images like you see below and determine if the particles are dust, pollen, or mold. Soon people will be able to use their mobile device to see this information on our app, Pollen Wise™.

Pollen Counts

We could go on and on with the pictures as they’re generated every few minutes (the samples above skip a lot of in-between samples).

After the artificial intelligence tells us what each particle is, we can create a graph that reveals a trend:

See the gap in the chart? That’s where we turned our machine off to move it. That absence of information is what most of us deal with much of the time unless a sensor is providing timely data.
