Making cities more breathable starts by measuring, analyzing and understanding the data of air pollution.

Understanding Air Quality Starts with Understanding the Weather.

The amount of air pollution also depends on meteorological conditions. To a certain extent nature's own air conditioning can keep the air clean. Wind mixes the gases and dilutes them and rain washes the dust and other substances to the ground.

Vaisala's Computer Vision is a form of Artificial Intelligence that enables a computer to analyze and identify objects from visual data. Vaisala's system focuses on transport infrastructure and is able to automatically produce information that asset management and maintenance teams can use to assist in decision making.

Come and meet us at the Smart City Expo in Barcelona to hear more how to make cities more breathable. You'll find us hall 2 booth A 192!

What Does Air Quality Monitoring Actually Mean

The amount of air pollution also depends on meteorological conditions. To a certain extent nature's own air conditioning can keep the air clean. Wind mixes the gases and dilutes them and rain washes the dust and other substances to the ground.

But when strong winds can move pollutants hundreds of kilometers away, under weak wind circumstances they can accumulate to certain location causing increased air pollution. Rain can also pollute the environment if acidic components, such as sulfuric or nitric acid fall to the ground from the atmosphere.

That is why simply measuring air pollution alone does not tell us very much. To be able to understand why air quality can vary from day to day, we must measure meteorological conditions as well, such as temperature, rain and humidity.
