The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has launched the world’s most advanced and comprehensive network of air quality monitors to help investigate and improve London’s toxic air.
‘Breathe London’ will use a range of cutting-edge fixed and mobile sensors to build up a real-time, hyperlocal image of London’s air quality. The data these monitors collect from across the capital will provide an unprecedented level of detail about London’s air quality crisis and deliver new insight into the sources of pollution.
Air Monitors designed and installed the network of AQMesh air quality monitoring pods, as well as the air quality analysers that were specially adapted to operate inside the Google Street View cars. Air Monitors will also be responsible for the ongoing service and maintenance of all of the project’s air quality monitoring equipment. During the launch, Air Monitors Managing Director Jim Mills showed the Mayor how simple it will be to access real-time air quality data using any web-enabled device.
