Deploying air quality monitoring networks as part of smart city initiatives
AQMesh pods are used in a wide range of applications throughout the world, and the list is still growing as opportunities for small sensor air quality systems continue to develop and global air quality has become a key environmental and political focus. Here are just a few of the major areas for air quality monitoring where AQMesh can provide a solution.
Roadside outdoor air quality monitoring in town centres and residential areas
Perimeter and fence line monitoring of oil and gas facilities
Two AQMesh pods were used to measure NO, NO2, O3 and CO during May and June 2017 at Upplands Motor Stockholm AB car dealership in Sweden, located on the highway between Stockholm city centre and Arlanda airport.
S I Analytics has supplied 65 AQMesh pods into Southern Africa since 2016, many of which are used in mining applications. The small, post-mounted air pollution monitoring units measure a range of gaseous pollutants and particulate matter, as well as environmental conditions.
A study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association has found that long-term exposure to poor air quality can have the same damaging effect as smoking 20 cigarettes a day, with air pollution shown to be more dangerous than passive smoking.
