According to the World Health Organization, poor air quality affects 92% of people worldwide. Air quality measurements do not exist in many regions of the world. For places with measurement, existing networks do not provide information on the variability of pollution in neighborhoods and at the street level. Building on advances in small sensors, cloud computing, and big data analysis, Aclima has developed a next-generation sensor network platform that enable wide scale monitoring of the quality of our environment. Recent work using Aclima’s mobile platform in California has demonstrated that air pollution is hyper local, significantly varying over the length scale of a city block. The type of data made possible by large-scale sensing has the potential to be transformative, enabling researchers, public health experts, and policy makers to better understand and quantify the impact of hyper local pollution on communities and to make better decisions on where to focus efforts to improve human health and combat climate change.
