Great news for a consortium developing technology to help sufferers of air pollution to improve their quality of life. Air-PoT has been shortlisted for the Technology Supply Chain awards for the category of Tech Innovator of the Year.
The UK currently has tens of thousands of Internet-of-Things (IoT) enabled pollution sensors in operation. These equipment/sensors are owned by 100s of councils, 100s of consortiums’ schemes, numerous authorities/organisations, and numerous private groups. These owners, however, share their results through many different uncoordinated sources/websites, which display information in very different ways, thus making access and ability to understand this data/information difficult. The trend is similar across Europe with a massive number of sensors and the USA with over 100,000 sensors disseminated via many different means.
Air-PoT (led by a consortium of experienced experts in business, technology and atmospheric science) looks to bridge this gap by cleverly combining AI, Blockchain, and BigData to harness data from the advanced UK infrastructure thousands of IoT emission sensors via a centralised platform. The result of this data harmonisation process enables an intuitive and user- friendly App to help inform and guide public behaviour to avoid high air pollution areas, offering sufferers valuable health guidance and recommendations based on localised air pollution levels.
