Mobile microclimatic monitoring equipment for the thermal, visual and acoustic environment, for use in outdoor space

Appropriate monitoring techniques have been identified for monitoring the thermal, visual and acoustic environment. The monitoring equipment has been designed and constructed in an innovative way, in order for it to be portable. Environmental monitoring involves the thermal microclimate measuring air temperature, solar radiation, wind speed, humidity, the visual environment measuring horizontal and cylindrical illuminance, and the acoustic environment measuring sound pressure levels.

All the sensors are connected to a data-logger to store the information for the recorded period. By placing the equipment near people it is possible to monitor the conditions experienced by users of open spaces, throughout the space, allowing evaluation of comfort conditions in urban spaces.
