IoT and Air Quality in Cities part 1: Air Quality Sensing

In the last years, many air quality sensors and data solutions have emerged in response to the need for a higher air pollution monitoring resolution in cities. However, caution is needed as low-cost sensors are generally less accurate, show drift over time and are cross-sensitive to other pollutants or meteorological conditions. Moreover, a dedicated hardware setup is needed meeting the demands of your specific use case. This workshop will guide you in a stepwise approach towards a sensor-based solution, including choosing the right sensor for the specific application, and required data calibration and validation.

Date: Tuesday March 09rd 2021, 09:00 - 11:00


Registered participants will receive the MS Teams-link a few days before the meeting.
