A pollution indicator on our car dashboard?
August 17th, 2007

This might soon be possible according to researchers at the University of Manchester. They’ve designed a near-infrared diode laser sensor able to record levels of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and methane directly from your car’s exhaust. Their device could be one day incorporated into onboard diagnostic systems and be permanently in use while you drive. So you could be warned that your pollution levels are too high. The system would include dashboard warnings telling you to modify the way you’re driving.
