Home IoT Solutions Air quality monitoring in London

Air quality monitoring in London

CLIENT: The Environmental Research Group of King’s College London is a leading provider of air quality information and research in the UK.


CHALLENGE: Find and test more affordable and efficient solutions for the monitoring of Particulate Matter (PM 1,0/2,5/10).


  • Sensor procurement;
  • Creation of algorithms (firmware) for higher data resolution (access values for each of the 16 Bins that compose the total amount of PM1.0, PM2.5 and PM10);
  • Development of back-office on PULSUS Platform with customized dashboard;
  • Design, development and deployment of an IoT Solution, based on PULSUS Platform, for real-time monitoring of Particulate Matter.



  • Real-time monitoring of Particulate Matter;
  • Analytical visualization of PM1.0 / PM2.5 / PM10 and their 16 Bins;
  • Raw data storage and exportation.


RESULTS: Cost-savings: Validation of more “cost-effective” monitoring solutions.


GLOBAL IMPACT: These more efficient solutions make it possible to deploy denser monitoring networks to provide more data and direct feedback of a city’s air quality and pollution reduction policies fit into Digital Cities’ initiatives.
