We can’t see air but we know it surrounds us and that we rely on it to survive. Therefore, unsurprisingly, the quality of this life-giving mixture of gases has become of increasing concern.
Atmospheric physicist Dr Mark Richards joins explains how we can monitor this using environmental sensing systems that can rapidly identify, track and map air pollution.
Whether by bus, bicycle or car, you might be accompanied by one of these wireless sensors as you commute to work. As you ride, these sensors will be collecting crucial data on-the-move that can enable the real-time visualisation of the quality of the air around you.
Discover the impact that such technology could have on local and global policy and, perhaps for the first time, see the air you breathe.
