This deployment of a dense AirNode sensor network is helping the authority to fully understand air quality in an urban centre. The project successfully attributed air pollution to vehicular traffic while observing long range pollution and identifying specific locations for mitigation solutions.
This ‘before and after’ assessment explored the pollution reduction in a residential street following its closure to traffic. The project was funded by Brent’s Neighbourhood Community Infrastructure Levy (NCIL).
Using its design expertise, AirLabs helped deploy an air quality monitoring and cleaning system that blended in with the existing infrastructure at a major transport hub, improving air quality and helping to encourage people back to public transport.
AirLabs has conducted a number of co-location studies to validate the accuracy of its AirNode sensor by installing devices close to reference stations and comparing the results. In all studies, the AirNode sensors tracked pollution measurements in line with the reference stations proving their accuracy .
