Pollution and IoT – using technology to clean our air
The issue of air quality is an ever-growing problem for cities across the world. World Health Organisation (WHO) research states that 91 per cent of people live in places where the air pollution exceeds recommended limits and every year 4.2m deaths are caused by ambient (outdoor) air pollution.
Many cities have already begun to implement ‘green’ projects to help improve their air quality; for example, investing in infrastructure such as electric vehicle charging points. Another technology playing an important role in cleaning our air is the Internet of Things (IoT).
