As one of the drastic outcomes of the climate crisis, air pollution is now considered “the greatest environmental risk to health” to date.
Current air quality networks cannot track air pollution trends and capture high polluted episodes. More dense sensor networks must be installed city-wide to understand and control the air we breathe. Now, cities (London, San Francisco, Barcelona, and many more) started to use low-cost sensors with proper communication and cloud back-end instead of spending thousands of euros on a bulky regulatory monitor.
From its first day, the primary goal of us airqoon has been to transform continuous environmental monitoring into a scalable and accessible way to help citizens and local authorities to understand the air around them and to come up with policies/solutions depending on the measurement campaign.
