Breathe London - 100 AQMesh pods are used as stationary monitoring points in the groundbreaking Breathe London project.
AQMesh is a small-sensor air quality monitoring system for measuring outdoor and indoor air quality, offering real-time localised air quality information and data analysis. AQMesh pods measure key pollutants in ambient air using the best small sensor technology combined with proprietary data processing derived from extensive global comparisons with reference data. The product combines a robust hardware platform with wireless power options, GPRS communication, cloud-based data processing and secure online access. AQMesh pods are manufactured in the UK to an exceptionally high quality based on many years’ experience of developing environmental monitoring equipment for harsh environments and challenging international standards.
Full range of parameters available
AQMesh can be specified to monitor a single gas or up to 6 gases, as well as PM, noise and wind speed & direction:-
Measures gases NO, NO2, O3, CO, SO2 and H2S using the latest generation of electrochemical sensors
CO2 monitoring with a NDIR sensor
Measures particulates PM1, PM2.5 and PM10 with a light-scattering optical particle counter
Noise monitoring with an omnidirectional microphone
Meteorological sensor for wind speed and direction measurement
Measures relative humidity, pod temperature, atmospheric pressure as standard
Power supply options
AQMesh offers a range of power supply options depending upon your monitoring requirements.
The bespoke AQMesh solar pack is our most popular choice, offering autonomous continuous power all year round.
Internal lithium batteries are useful for pods monitoring gases only.

AQMesh case studies
AQMesh is in use across the globe, with deployments in each continent in a wide range of projects. There are smart city networks in the UK and USA, tunnel ventilation systems in France, volcanic emissions in Myanmar and domestic cooking studies in Kenya to name a few, amongst many other outdoor and indoor air quality monitoring applications. A wealth of information on AQMesh projects and customers can be found in all our news items but here are a few examples of specific case studies.
Urban Observatory - AQMesh systems are deployed across Newcastle and Gateshead in conjunction with other instruments for monitoring parameters such as air and water quality, noise, weather, energy use and traffic.
Minnesota Pollution Control Agency - 50 AQMesh pods are installed in Minneapolis and St. Paul to build up a picture of air quality across the two cities.
UNRESP project - Six AQMesh pods are used to show variations in volcanogenic emissions across locations near the Masaya volcano, Nicaragua.
AtmoSud & CETU - AQMesh network will be used to manage Marseille tunnel ventilation systems.
