To understand how air quality works and protect citizens from harm, City Managers in Kuwait and Doha have implemented a real-time IoT monitoring network of 90 ambient electronic noses and air quality sensors placed in areas across the city. These detect harmful pollutants and gases in real-time within the ambient air. In this session you will learn how they use the data collected in the cloud to provide city managers insights for immediate actions to reduce harm on city residents. Discover how they use atmospheric dispersion models, validated by several organizations such as the US EPA, together with wind data to determine the likely source of a measured impact.
