MIT SCHub Schedules Webinar on Cutting CO2 Emissions and Monitoring

The Masschusetts Institute of Technology's SCHub is hosting a webinar on Thursday, September 26, at 11 a.m. Eastern time titled The Carbin App: Cutting CO2 Emissions and Monitoring the Performance of our Roads. This webinar provides an update on the smartphone app Carbin which can assess the state of our infrastructure. With many improvements over the past six months, Carbin has now become an automatized system which, with engagement from the public, can be easily used to extract information on the quality of roads and their environmental impact at the city, state, or country scale. In Cambridge, MA, for which Carbin has recorded 350k individual measurements, we show that, when combined with traffic information, this approach can be used to optimize the management of our road infrastructure. The webinar will be hosted by CSHub research assistant Jake Roxon.

The MIT Concrete Sustainability Hub (CSHub) webinar series offers information of general interest to members of the building, paving, and construction communities, as well as to educators, students, journalists, and law and policy-makers interested in the environmental and economic impacts of decision-making concerning infrastructure. Webinars are free and open to the public. Presentations are geared toward a lay audience.

The RMC Research & Education Foundation is a co-funder of the MIT CSHub in conjunction with the Portland Cement Association. Earlier this year, it reported on the Carbin App.
