GOOGLE TO TEST AIR POLLUTION LEVELS WITH STREETVIEW MAPPING CARS

wo Google StreetView mapping cars will be fitted with air quality sensors next month to measure the pollution levels on London streets.

While continuing to map streets for the StreetView feature, the sensors will record air quality levels every 30 metres. According to Air Quality News, a further 100 fixed sensors (known as AQMesh pods) will be attached to buildings and light posts in pollution blackspots.

The pods will be supplied by British company Air Monitors. Managing director Jim Mills said the combination of data from StreetView cars and AQMesh pods will provide pollution figures in real time. “This network will be hyperlocal by which we mean that it will deliver street-level air quality data,” Mills said.

“(It) will be of tremendous interest to the public and also enable the effective assessment of air quality interventions. The pods are wireless and battery-powered, so they can also be quickly and easily fixed to lamp posts in other sensitive locations such as schools.”
