Monitoring Air Quality with Sant Joan Despí Municipality

The challenge is to obtain continuous data on certain pollutants produced by motor vehicles, once the Low Emissions Zone has been launched throughout the urban area of ​​the municipality.

Besides , the challenge will allow Sant Joan Despí  to study a future city sensor network for decision-making in municipal management, as well as raising awareness among citizens by informing them with more transparency and precision about local air quality.

Objectives and solution outcomes 

The solution should meet at least one of the following objectives: 

  • Intend to evaluate the impact on air quality of the implementation of the ZBE
  • Check the behavior of the sensors in situ and the correlations with other methods.
