Environmental and Public Health Protection

Poor air quality is a serious environmental health issue around the world, driving cities to implement ambient air quality monitoring systems. Current reference-grade air quality monitoring stations provide accurate data, but networks are sparse. At the same time, city street maintenance organizations are looking for ways to improve operational efficiency.

Vaisala has developed a range of solutions that combine data from connected sensors and monitoring systems in several promising ways. Utilizing these Smart City systems can help you optimize city operations — benefiting residents, organizations, and the environment.

Join us for this engaging webinar to learn:

  • The latest data-driven weather and air quality applications
  • How to use computer vision for optimizing street maintenance operations
  • How to combine AI and sensor data to connect air quality monitoring with traffic surveillance, manage traffic emissions, and optimize street maintenance.
