Air Quality Monitoring | Education

Tailored to your growing needs

We understand the importance of ensuring safe route to schools and this includes the air quality in areas surrounding schools, so we’ve developed an air quality monitoring device designed to target the needs of schools and integrate with intelligent transport systems.

What are the benefits of monitoring air quality

The new Pilot Group Air Quality Monitor uses a combination of sensors to provide accuratereal-time measurements of key pollutants to track congestion and air pollution hotspots around schools in your area.

Multiple particulate matter detection

Multiple particulate matter detection

The AQM allows you to measure not only the standard PM2.5 and PM10, but also PM1 and PM4.0 for a comprehensive assessment of air quality around schools.

Live data recording capability

Live data recording capability

Pilot Group AQM provides real time hyper-local air quality monitoring to track high pollution levels and implement reactive measures.

Cloud-based CMS compatibility

Cloud-based CMS compatibility

Compatible with the TWM cloud-based CMS to combine with VAS/VMS signage to display real time air quality information.

Calculate average air quality index

The data collected through the AQM can be used to calculate the averaged AQI around each school.

Real-time warnings

Real-time warnings

Integrated signage can warn parents of hazardous levels of air pollution so they can take alternative routes to school

Activate temporary measures

Activate temporary reduced speed limits and road safety measures during drop-off and pick-up times.

Why should areas around schools implement air quality monitoring

According to the WHO, air pollution affects neurodevelopment in children, leading to lower cognitive test outcomes and negatively affecting mental and motor development. Children who have been exposed to high levels of air pollution can experience damage to lung function and may be at greater risk for chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease later in life.

Let's talk

Schemes like the School Streets initiative seek to highlight the dangerous impact of air pollution on children’s development and encourage temporary measures be brought in around drop-off and pick-up times.

Schools and local councils can promote active neighbourhoods focused on children’s safety on their routes to school and provide air quality updates on integrated signage, allowing parents to make informed decisions about their transport routes in response to likely pollution exposure.

Smart sensors such as traffic counters, height or presence detection and ANPR cameras can be used within your network infrastructure to predict and track congestion and pollution increases as well as enforce extra measures.

Air quality monitors can feed air quality data into a central management system. This information can be fed to the public through digital signage, boosting community engagement and helping to manage traffic flow and minimise idling traffic.
