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.
