The OECD (Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development) estimates the economic cost of air pollution for society to be $1.72T (in OECD member countries). Air pollution is responsible for a wide range of medical conditions. Current air pollution monitoring systems consist of expensive stations that measure a limited range of parameters. Because of the high cost of these stations, it is not practical for cities to measure air quality across a widespread area in detail. As a result, cities do not often have the type of measuring system in place to implement better air quality programs.
By implementing an air pollution monitoring solution comprised of sensors and gateways embedded with LPWAN Technology and an intelligent low-power, wide area network based on the respective LPWAN protocol, cities can better measure quality and provide the type of data necessary to drive change for their citizens.
NETOP air monitoring sensors embedded with LPWAN Technology are placed throughout the city. Sensors send periodic measurements of air quality data to a gateway. Gateway sends information to network where the data is analyzed by an application server which can identify zones of concern and provide recommendations. Application server provides information regarding air quality levels throughout the city, including alerts and pollution patterns, via computer or mobile device.
