At TRANSPORT Smart Class, London & South East England 2019 we were delighted to welcome back Imperial’s Ashley Bijster and Videalert’s Tim Daniels. Globally, they pointed out, polluted air has cut life expectancy by 1.67 years and is a significant contributor to diabetes, whilst in the UK three in ten child asthma cases are now caused by traffic pollution. Ashley and Tim went on to demonstrate how the move towards managing air quality in UK towns and cities needn’t, however, be a giant leap into the unknown but can be achieved by adding clean air zone rules and differentiated pricing for behaviour change to proven technologies, such as smart parking and emission permits, digital ANPR and AQ sensors, to make a very real difference to citizens’ quality of life.
