Air quality has become a growing concern over the past few years, so much so in fact that many news stations issue reports and warn the edlerly to avoid going outside if the air quality is deemed dangerous. The only problem is that this data is not in real time and is useless for local neighborhoods.
Sensaris looks to change that by providing a portable wrist device that provides a real time reading of the air quality as well as noise pollution. Working in tandem with GPS and a Bluetooth connection to a cell phone. the device uploads the data to Sensaris’ central server and aggregates the data to provide real time air quality on a local level. It looks like Paris will be the first to receive the devices, although it’s not clear if the program will be private or government subsidized.
