Enabling Hyper-Local Air Quality Monitoring with Emerging Technologies: EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class Retrospective

Government and local authorities globally are coming under increasing legislative pressure to better monitor air quality, and to deploy and actively manage ‘clean air zones’ across our cities. By 2050 a huge populations shift will have resulted in 70% of the world’s populations living in urban areas. This seismic shift is driving Smart City initiatives globally. 44% of UK councils currently do not have fit-for-purpose air and pollution monitoring capabilities (The Independent, 2017). With a more stringent government Air Quality Plan about to come into force, councils face significant fines if they are not compliant.

At last week’s EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class 2019, Managing Director, Adrian Sutton, and CTO, Dr Behzad Heravi, delivered a thought-provoking view on behalf of Welsh tech company Vortex IoT of the importance of the ‘Air that We Breathe’, and explained how emerging technologies and innovation will contribute to our ever-changing societal needs and how developing a new Hyper-Local Air Quality Monitoring (AQM) solution can provide revenue-generating opportunities for local authorities and play a key role in the creation of new urban business models that are essential as the shape of our towns and cities changes over time.
