Air quality monitoring networks for city wide monitoring
One of the fundamental features of smart cities is providing a sustainable environment. Real-time smart city air monitoring of various environmental parameters enables the authorities to make data-driven infrastructure and policy planning decisions. Oizom offers a wide range of smart, robust, and compact environmental monitoring solutions that can accurately detect up to 30 different parameters of various air pollutants and weather conditions. The data from the monitor is accessible on Envizom – Air Quality Monitoring software. Users can visualize and analyze the data in the desired formats like reports, alerts, heat maps, and trend analysis. Hence, data-driven decisions for better citizen health and a sustainable environment are possible using Oizom’s real-time air quality monitoring sensor. Additionally, City authorities can check the city’s exposure to pollution and devise a strategic plan for sustainable urban expansion and transportation route planning.
Optimize city health by smart city air monitoring
Real-time Air Quality monitoring empowers city administrators to implement advisory messages to tackle air pollution and safeguard the residents’ health and safety. One of the major responsibilities of the city administrators is to make sure that the elderly, children, and people who are prone to respiratory issues have a safe breathing environment. Additionally, hotspot identification allows citizens to make smart decisions for selecting residential places based on the peak hour duration of air pollution.
Better urban infrastructure planning
A network of multiple Polludrones can help identify air pollution hotspots in a city. The Data Analysing and Visualization software provides the authorities to determine excess traffic and high pollution zones. Such data and information can help the City planning committees make appropriate decisions. It is therefore an essential tool to validate and make informed decisions to build schools, hospitals, bridges, etc. based on the air pollution levels.
Pollution source detection
Smart cities attract a number of business opportunities and industries. However, city authorities face a number of challenges to ensure the citizens of safe breathing conditions. City-wide deployment of ambient air quality monitors is possible using Using multiple Oizom monitors. Secondary data further facilitates source apportionment studies and empowers lawmakers to penalize polluters. Hyperlocal data monitoring becomes a possibility and thus allows air pollution control bodies to take real-time corrective actions.
Weather monitoring and disaster prediction
The dense population in any urban location and the impacts of climate change has increased over the last few decades. This has burdened the municipal and local governments to take precautions in case of a natural disaster. Accurate weather monitoring of meteorological parametrs not only creates awareness amongst the citizens but also helps in developing forecasting models. This becomes a crucial tool for any kind of disaster prevention and helps the government create a safer environment for the people in a Smart city.
