The background to this project relates to the “why” of the project, as in why complete this project? This can be answered from two perspectives, the personal interest in the Raspberry Pi and its applications in everyday life and the application of complex programming in order to complete a complex project.

As a student, this writer believes that student housing standards are important. The project, which aims to detect mould growth conditions in student housing, may be beneficial to students and landlords who wish to maintain healthy living conditions in accommodation environments. Throughout the research conducted, there is a reoccurring issue with the presence of particular moulds, as they can be directly harmful to humans and animals but can also indirectly cause issues such as life-long respiratory diseases and illnesses. The detection of mould may also identify conditions that are unhealthy or may add to existing medical conditions.

Also as a computing student, this writer is interested in the applications of Raspberry Pi in ordinary life and how it can be developed to automate or streamline many tasks. These different tasks can be completed from one system and reduce the number of devices needed in a domestic setting or even a commercial setting.
