Current by GE embraces BreezoMeter's air solution

BreezoMeter city platform is available within Current by GE intelligent environment software Predix

Introduction

The partnership between Current, powered by GE, and BreezoMeter provides air quality analytics to help refine city mapping and increase climate-change initiatives. Air quality impacts economies in the same way a heavy rain can affect traffic on the road. BreezoMeter software reveals historic, current and predictive conditions in a format as easy to understand as a weather report.
Embedded sensors inside Current, powered by GE, intelligent fixtures provide ubiquitous environmental and traffic data to the BreezoMeter Air Quality Management Platform. This enables city officials to receive data to help identify the sources of air pollution, pinpoint the areas of concern and plan a course of action to help mitigate it.

Added precision with micro data from city lights

Actionable information for city officials

Air quality reports for urban planning & traffic management
