air quality sensing technologies

which type of sensors or methodes are used to obtain air quality measurements. “Direct” methods refer to devoted sensing devices bought and used by the costumer, “indirect” methods to data collection methods from offial air quality networks

array of gas sensors (VOC, CO2, CO) and PM sensor

other sensing technologies

for example meteorological data, positioning data, …

temperature, humidity

quantitative: what kind of data is measured

speed, distance, noise, location,…

air quality, temperature and humidity in room

what type of qualitative data is gathered


what kind of data is calculated

CO², cost, health, … / What is the basis of calculation (e.g. reference database, European guidelines for external costs, etc.)

pattern recoginition and machine learning algorithms to analsyse the data (at the cloud)

reporting method

which reporting method is used (for example: website or directly on the smartphone’s app, heat maps, dashboard, and/or reports)

recommendations for optimized air refreshment, source location


method of reporting (visualisation) of the collected data (qualitative representation can be a red or a green light, a text explaining the progress, while quantitative representation consists of numbers or statistics

dashbourd (colour-coded), timeseries, sliders (knowledge base) to scale the measurements
