Design of mini- and microsensors
The task pertains to the design and enhancing the performance of mid-range cost sensor devices and designing optimal low-cost sensors devices.
The calibration can take place when a lower quality sensor is near a higher quality sensor, or when the high precision pollution map and telemetry enable the calibration of the sensor based on its position and orientation. The goal is that after calibration the low quality sensor would provide pollution data that increases the spatial-temporal resolution of the system.
The MegaSense Concept
MegaSense utilizes 5G network and SMEAR -towers precise atmospheric real time readings and Artificial Intelligence platform for a spatially distributed network to field calibrate low cost sensors in operational mode for fixed monitoring stations and mobile air quality monitoring stations. It introduces innovative pollution cameras as promising alternative to reduce high cost of maintenance and replacement of passive gas samplers.
