What is IoT-Enabled Air Pollution Monitoring?

Air pollution monitoring uses stationary or mobile IoT-enabled sensors to map and monitor the air quality in large geographical areas – enabling cities to better regulate air pollution and make more informed decisions.

Value Proposition

According to the World Health Organization, 90 percent of the global population breathes harmful air, leading to 7 million deaths per year. While cities can regulate emissions and encourage the population to utilize more environmentally-friendly alternatives, the cost-prohibitive nature of existing solutions makes it difficult to see if those efforts are actually making a difference.

Smart city air pollution monitoring solutions offer a more cost-effective and complete way for cities to measure and track changes in air quality.

How it Works

Air monitoring solutions utilize stationary sensors, installed into smart street lights, for example; mobile sensors, like those that might be attached to cars or bicycles; or anonymized cell phone data, which provides data on the air quality an average city-dweller might encounter throughout the day.

Key Benefits of IoT-Enabled Air Pollution Monitoring

  • Better inform and monitor the impact of regulations to control air quality.
  • Plan the placement of vulnerable facilities like hospitals and schools to reduce asthma in children and improve the outcome of sick patients.
  • Empower city residents to make more informed decisions to limit their exposure to harmful air pollution.
