Ultra-broadband infrared gas sensor for pollution detection

Project description

Local monitoring system for healthier air

Ambient air pollution accounts for 4.2 million premature deaths per year due to stroke, heart disease, lung cancer and chronic respiratory diseases. Around 91 % of the world’s population lives in places where air quality levels exceed limits set by the World Health Organization. The EU-funded TRIAGE project will develop a cloud-connected, smart, photonic sensing system using the latest mid-infrared technology to monitor air pollution. The project’s new approach enables pervasive community-based sensing from a linked network of static and mobile detection units. The data will be automatically processed in real-time using machine learning algorithms to provide long-term concentration maps for many pollutant gases, as well as emergency warnings in the case of local hot spots.
