We began 85+ years ago in true Finnish character with honesty, curiosity, and determination. Today, we continue to explore the unknown, expand the boundaries of knowledge, and create smarter, more sustainable living.
Connecting people to the environment and improving community health starts with access to education and reliable information. By providing helpful air pollution insights and weather intelligence, Vaisala’s world-class air quality monitoring capabilities improve decision-making and empower stakeholders in communities across the world.
Our goal is to create a shared investment in community health. With comprehensive, professional-grade air quality management and measurement solutions, you can dive deeper into the sources and fluctuations of emissions, mitigate risks with visibility into top-priority air pollutants, and drive down exposure to pollution hotspots.
At its heart, having a smart city means planning preventive maintenance and optimizing resources to maximize well-being. Think innovation, participation, collaboration and coordination between all stakeholders – especially residents.
We provide accurate, reliable measurement solutions and actionable insights that help you make better decisions to improve your city. With smart applications that integrate weather and air quality sensors, street lights can provide insights while charging electric vehicles. Traffic surveillance camera systems can reveal how rush hour affects local pollution. Transportation and traffic management systems can reduce congestion. See how AI and sensors combine to enable real solutions that can help you make your city a better place to live and work.
Industries around the world including mining, power plants and oil & gas are working to understand and mitigate the impact of air pollution, while finding new ways to operate efficiently in the face of extreme weather.
Because weather affects the concentration and movement of pollutants, it is important to measure both — for understanding current conditions and uncovering historical trends. This data can help organizations fulfill regulatory compliance, optimize pollution mitigation measures and save costs, secure workforce health and improve public communication and outreach.
Other atmospheric parameters that affect operational efficiency and power output include air quality, water temperature, air pressure and humidity. These insights empower decision-makers to drive production planning and output efficiency, enhance the capability to forecast supply and demand, and improve safety and resiliency against severe weather events.
