  • Value for money air quality sensors for smart cities

    Smart city projects increasingly seek to include air quality measurements. If city authorities and the public are being asked to act based on air quality readings they must be credible. Whilst cheap sensors may offer easily integrated readings, they offer poor value for money if the information they produce cannot be trusted by the public, smart city project managers and stakeholders. The search ...

  • Space watch on air quality

    Sensitive sensors located in space are being drafted to help scientists monitor the state of the quality of the Earth’s air. With air pollution becoming one of the world's biggest dangers to society's health and an economic drain on some nations, current and up- to-date information on air pollution levels and their movement are vital to researchers tackling this problem. The ESA Earth Observation ...

  • AQMesh demonstrates legitimacy of small sensors for air quality in Cambridge

    At the RSC AAMG event on ‘Air Quality Monitoring: Evolving Issues and New Technologies’ Professor Rod Jones of the University of Cambridge presented a paper showing very encouraging results. “Because we know that all the pods read the same and because we have a comparison between one pod and a reference instrument we can ...
