46th Intelligent Sensing Program – Sensing the Air Quality and Emissions
Posted on 31/07/2017
KTN is organising a one day networking workshop, on the 10th October, on air quality sensing.
Air pollution seriously impacts on people’s health and threatens the sustainability of economics development. In the UK alone, air pollution causes over 40,000 early deaths annually. Air quality monitoring devices are now widely used by public and private organisations to monitor the quality of the air and pollutants emissions from industry and other sources such as cars, so that to detect violations to air quality standard and control pollution discharges into the air. Sensing devices for air quality monitoring (AQM) were worth $3.4b globally in 2015, and will continue to grow at a rapid rate, and expected to reach $5.64bn by 2021.
The UK is a world-leader in key AQM technologies innovation development, and has an excellent AQM sensing community, rich research expertise, active and innovative industrial companies and also end-user communities. However, to more effectively address the air pollution issue, close collaborations of researchers, industry companies, Government regulators, and other key stakeholders, need to be established, and new innovative solutions need to be developed.
The workshop will bring together end-user communities, technology providers, researchers, regulatory and funding agencies and other key stakeholders in the UK, and provide an opportunity to network and exchange ideas and knowledge.
