Mapping air quality with high accuracy and high-spatial resolution

Project description

Sensor technology for air pollution control

Population growth, leading to an increase in the density of urban air pollution, is a critical problem for both public health and the economy. It is estimated that more than half of the EU's cities surpass the limits posed by EU regulations concerning NO2 and PM10 pollutants. However, existing air quality controlling stations in cities are few due to the high costs of installation and maintenance. The EU-funded MappingAir project proposes a platform as a service, or PaaS, that allows air pollution mapping in cities. The solution is based on a vast deployment of specific gas sensors and uses an innovative post-processing algorithm. The sensors are installed in streetlights with the purpose to identify unknown pollution origins and to propose effective environmental actions.
