In this session join SPEED partners Portland Port and Portsmouth International Port and smart port technology providers Barter4Things and Sinay to explore how they have developed smart end-to-end Air Quality monitoring systems and how these inform decision making.
How does IoT and AI support port management of Air Quality?
Air quality continues to be the top environmental priority for ports, as air quality has become a key determinant of sustainable port activity and ports’ license to operate. (European Sea Ports Organisation 2020) Air pollution is a major public health risk, ranking alongside cancer, heart disease and obesity and it poses the single greatest environmental risk to human health.
Low powered wide area networks (IoT) enable ports to collect real-time contextual data and monitor the impact of variables on Air Quality. Collating sensor information to a dashboard allows port authorities to visualise how management strategies affect Air Quality, and applying AI algorithms can support the port in modelling mitigating actions.
