Air Quality Experiment

Real-time data, pollution exposure, public awareness & urban planning

Introduction

The City of Paris launched an ambitious campaign called ‘Réinventons nos places’, in English ‘Let’s reinvent our squares’. Its goal is to improve quality of life, enhance public spaces and promote new usage as well as sustainable transport modes in 7 Parisian squares with strong history.

Place de la Nation square was chosen to start a large scale experimentation to collect noise, air pollution, and usage data. The results are shared with Parisians both in the square, through information screens, and online via open data.

The air quality aspect of the pilot is run by BreezoMeter and Cisco: BreezoMeter analyzes air quality data from local sensors, connected to the full network by Cisco. The project emphasizes on the different users’ exposure to pollution, the impact of road traffic and on supporting future urban planning and development.
