CREVIS SPRL participated in the fifth H2020 hackAIR project meeting, held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th of October 2017. The meeting was hosted by the local partner ONSUBJECT, leading the Exploitation and Dissemination activities of the project.
The first day agenda focused on the developments of all the six partners’ and affiliated third parties’ activities for the last sixth months. The second day of the meeting was dedicated to the pilot cases implementation and an internal project workshop on the sensors assembly and use.
hackAIR is an open technology platform that enables communities of citizens to easily set up air quality monitoring networks and engage their members in measuring and publishing outdoor air pollution levels. It consists of a customizable web application for local air quality information and a mobile app that citizens can use to access air quality information or contribute with their measurements. The hackAIR toolkit aims to complement official data with a number of community-driven data sources, including:
- an easy-to-build open hardware sensor module that citizens can build on their own following the instructions provided by hackAIR;
- air quality information derived from pictures of the sky that citizens take with their mobile phone.
CREVIS SPRL was recently included in the consortium implementing the hackAIR project, as third party affiliated to DRAXIS Environmental S.A. CREVIS is responsible for the pilot testing of the hackAIR platform in Brussels and will support Communication and Dissemination activities.
