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

gas sensors (CO, NOx, ozone)

other sensing technologies

for example meteorological data, positioning data, …

temperature and humidity sensors, GPS

quantitative: what kind of data is measured

speed, distance, noise, location,…

“CO concentration,
NOx concentration,
O3 concentration,
location,
meteo”

what type of qualitative data is gathered

none

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.)

sensor measurements, data analysis tools are provided

reporting method

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

website and mobile app

visualisations

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

graphs, maps, real-time and historical

incentives

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

self-monitoring, collective actions, grassroot organization campaigns
