Transportation plays a significant role in global air pollution, contributing up to 80% of NOx emissions. Policy enforcement is costly and mostly ineffective. Effectiveness of current emission controls cannot be validated due to higher NOx levels for on-road vs. stationary tests. Less pollution could reduce healthcare costs, crime and education performance. The challenge: how to incentivize consumer and commercial adoption?
This session offers a solution: SensorComm’s IoT-based mobile pollution monitoring system (Wi-NOx*) provides real-time measurement and monitoring of NOx emissions. Systems are installed in tailpipes and operate independently of each vehicle. Wi-NOx can identify specific polluters to reduce emissions, create alternative revenue sources for municipalities, and form the cornerstone of a global pollution mitigation strategy.
