A UCLA-USC team under a $6 million grant from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering will develop kid-friendly technology enabling smartphones and smart watches to identify risk factors and environmental triggers for asthma attacks.

Researchers will build a platform that enables smart devices to collect data from sensors worn by children and also placed in various locations at their homes and schools. The sensors will securely transmit data to a cloud-based system where it will be integrated with patients’ electronic health records and real-time reports on weather conditions, air quality, pollen count and other factors that could trigger asthma attacks.
