Live and breathe in
your city, your home!
Improving air quality in the city is
one of the smart city priorities
bettair platform permits cities, for the first time,
to map the air pollution in cities on a scale
previously unimaginable!

WHAT IS IT?

This novel smart city technology provides a dense and fast pollution
mapping tool for large cities to better understand, bring insights,
and mitigate pollution by taking smart actions

The Platform

The platform is based on portable or fixed nodes, incorporating low-cost gas sensor, is scalable, flexible and adaptable to any city

Advanced Data Post-processing

Disruptive technology based on accurate low-cost gas sensors using advanced data post-processing techniques, provides similar accuracy than traditional and expensive equipment with a fraction of price. Thus, permitting to deploy a large and dense sensor grid
Impressive Pearson Correlation higher than 0.8 compared to a traditional AQM equipment

Custom Visualization Tools

The pollution data allows the calculation of the Air Quality Index (AQI) and it is provided using the latest GIS visualization tools and can be adapted to each city requirement

How does pollution affect you?

Air pollution is a major problem for public health. Outdoor air pollutions
kills 3.3 million people, mostly in cities, every year. The problem is
magnifying with the unpredecendent population growth in cities
