Improving living standards and taking care of the natural environment are crucial challenges every local government faces. Airly's Data Platform is a perfect and complete tool to show that local authorities care about the well-being of their inhabitants.
Situation: As part of their clean air strategy, Birmingham city council wanted to explore options to improve air quality in the city centre to make it more attractive to visitors and businesses.
Action enabled by Airly: Birmingham installed a 70 sensor Airly network to inform policy development. Specifically, the analysis of data from the sensors allows Birmingham to forecast the benefit from the introduction of an Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) and design the perimeter of the scheme to maximise air pollution benefits with minimal traffic disruption. Then track the benefit of the scheme to justify prolongation or extension to a larger area.
Situation: As part of their clean air strategies, Bedford and Lambeth wanted to explore options to improve air quality around local schools to protect children.
Action enabled by Airly: The Airly network at local schools identified NO2 and PM from vehicular traffic as the main cause of pollution. This analysis allowed the local authorities to design the introduction of “green school streets” (banning vehicle access at drop-off and pick-up) as well as forecast and track the benefits for the children. In addition, schools can make informed decisions on when the air is safest to allow children to play outside.
Governmental reference stations providing air quality data are very costly and few in number. Studies show that air quality can vary considerably at a distance of 200 metres. Airly's Data Platform is a perfect solution for both big cities and communes that want to develop more extensive and hyper-local air quality measurements, and for smaller places where air quality measurements haven't been taken before.
Our platform consists of a full set of tools to run real-time air quality monitoring. We deliver a complete solution to measure, analise,track and forecast air quality.
Thanks to the SaaS access/payment model, we can cover cities and municipalities with dozens of measurement points (sensors) and provide an advanced system for analysing and presenting data in a way that is understandable to residents. Our solutions are always adapted and individualised to the needs of a specific local authority and community. Our solutions will meet the requirements of every local government.
We already cooperate with over 400 local governments, and more than 4,500 of our devices are in operation worldwide. As a result, we have gained a unique experience in serving the local governments in the best way possible.
