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

portabel sensing unit (VOC, CO, moisture, temperature)

other sensing technologies

for example meteorological data, positioning data, …

portabel sensing unit (temperature, humidity)

quantitative: what kind of data is measured

speed, distance, noise, location,…

VOC and CO concentration, humidity and temperature

what type of qualitative data is gathered


what kind of data is calculated

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

air quality score

reporting method

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

by led on sensor device, smartphone application


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

real-time monitoring and air quality scoring


self-monitoring, gamification, rewards, social networks,…

self monitoring

applicability of results
