With wireless communications using the global mobile network and a choice of power options, including batteries, mains supply or a bespoke solar pack, AQMesh air quality monitors can be installed in almost any location.
Ports and shipping, airports, rail and road traffic management
Transportation is one of the largest contributors to a reduction in air quality, especially in urban areas, producing many pollutants including nitrogen oxides, particulates and noise from roads, airports, rail networks and ports.
Conventional air quality monitoring systems are often too large and complex to install in the locations where monitoring is necessary to provide sufficient resolution to identify sources and implement changes. AQMesh is ideal for this application, already being deployed across the globe in railway stations, along port and harbour coastlines, at airports and alongside intelligent traffic management systems. A number of power sources can be used to suit the specific location with data returned in near real-time via our secure, web-based application in easily recognisable formats. Reliable data can be compared with traffic flow and meteorological information to allow a better understanding of conditions which lead to pollutant excursions and how to minimise and prevent them in future.
The AQMesh air quality monitor is neat, compact and easy install within just a few minutes and experienced technical staff are not required.
AQMesh air quality monitoring systems can measure just one gas or up to six gases, particles, noise and wind speed & direction. Humidity, pressure and pod temperature are always measured.
The carefully developed data processing algorithms used by AQMesh outdoor air quality monitors are fully traceable and fixed by version number, and, unlike other systems, have been achieved with no use of machine learning or artificial intelligence.
AQMesh air quality monitors require very little maintenance and there is a very low ongoing cost. All we recommend is the electrochemical sensors are replaced every two years, and we replace all sensors for free during the first year.
AQMesh prides itself on the level of global customer support it provides to its distributors and end users before, during and after sale. There is no cost for technical support and location is not a barrier.

Situated in the south west of Wales (UK), in a largely rural area bordering the Brecon Beacons, Carmarthenshire’s air quality is predominantly good.
Extensive research has shown that indoor air quality is often worse than outdoors. Closed system buildings trap harmful particles inside, and external air intakes can bring in more polluted air from outside.
AQMesh has been used in a project at the Port of Kiel, Germany, to measure emissions of nitrous oxides (NOx) and fine particulate matter (PM) around its cruise ship terminal.
Following a successful evaluation phase in 2018, AQMesh small sensor air quality monitoring ‘pods’ have been selected for use in a project to control the ventilation of a road tunnel in the city of Marseille.
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.
Schools near Glasgow have been monitoring air quality as part of a project aiming to reduce the levels of pollution emitted by vehicles as they drop off and collect children.
