Abstract:
    Our objective is to design a smart face-mask which will protect its wearer from air borne pollutants while keeping their lungs and heart healthy.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    According to EPI report Pakistan ranks amongst the 12 worst countries in environmental pollution. WHO reports 200 deaths per 100 000 population in Pakistan due to environmental factors while 40 million acute respiratory cases are reported every year.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Individuals with heart and lung diseases such as coronary artery disease, asthma, emphysema are most susceptible to severe health problems from air pollution.
How will the solution works
    The Project will monitor wearer`s health and activity; including the following features: Respiration Monitoring using temperature IR sensor, GPS Tracking and mobile application, Daily levels of AQI recording using air quality sensors, Monitoring exposure to pollution at workplace, Pollutant Prediction using machine learning, Air filtration using charcoal filter.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Currently, there is no cheap locally manufactured product in Pakistan to prevent aggravation of airborne diseases without medical aid. Internationally, expensive but available options include: Hexa by Koolmask, Atlanta Cambridge, Vogmask, and Totobobo.
