The development of a close-meshed network of local fine-dust data,                which can be fed and used well by general public.

Results and Publications


Results

Feasibility study 

As soon as initial results are available on the potential of widespread distributed aerosol measurements with smart metering networks and heterogeneous sensors in urban areas, these will be published here.


Data collection

Here you will find results for the development of mobile cross-linked measurements and measuring devices as well as participatory / intelligent data acquisition interfaces.


Data aggregation and analysis

Within this paragraph results from data source aggregation, data analysis and plausibility checks using geostatistical techniques and data mining for epidemiological research are presented.


Data-based applications

Here, results such as the air quality-related predictive analysis platform, air quality-related traffic routing and planned tutorial sessions are published.
