Design of mini- and micro-SMEAR station
The task pertains to the design and realization of the mini- and micro-SMEAR sensor stations and the Calibration-as-a-Service.
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 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.
