    I recall Christine Robins speaking about a new sensor that was going to be released in September. The new device monitored 5 parameters. Have I recalled correctly? Did the device get released in September?

    • Susan R.

      I think the release was pushed back. I had to buy the one they currently have. UPMC had a discount.

    Really interesting meeting and great people. If parking is a concern I found a easy solution but it will cost $6. There is a parking lot (214 Meyran Avenue, Pittsburgh?) <100 m southeast of the meeting.

    • Susan R.

      Thanks Farrel. I parked in a garage on Meyran for $5 the past 2 meetings. If you turn right on Forbes, the garage is on the right. ....Added benefit of not having to scrape windows off if it snows.

      FYI street parking in Oakland is free after 6pm...
