EarthSense Systems sponsors national air quality award

EarthSense Systems, a joint venture between aerial mapping company Bluesky and our University, is sponsoring a national award for air quality.

Part of the National Air Quality Conference, the awards are designed to recognise achievement and champion innovation throughout the air quality sector. EarthSense is sponsoring the Local Authority and Public Sector Air Quality Initiative of the Year award, whose shortlisted finalists include Barts Health NHS Trust and Global Action Plan, Transport for Greater Manchester, the Cross River Partnership and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency working with Glasgow City of Science and Young Scot.

EarthSense enables policy makers, planners and those responsible for delivering results to access to real world information in order to support decision making and aims to deliver products that enable the world to visualise and solve its air quality issues.

The Local Authority and Public Sector Air Quality Initiative of the Year award, sponsored by EarthSense, will be presented to the organisation or partnership that has delivered an air quality project or programme that has been shown to have a demonstrable effect on air quality.

EarthSense, who will also be exhibiting at the event, has already undertaken a range of air quality monitoring projects, including trials of an airborne air quality mapper, air pollution monitoring equipment on a rocket, and mobile mapping with air quality sensors mounted in electric cars. Future plans include the establishment of a nationwide network of air quality monitoring sensors, feeding live data for up to the minute air quality predictions.
