Addressing urban air quality challenges

Jyrgalbek Shamyraliev

Vice-Mayor, Bishkek City Mayor’s Office

"The data provided by the sensors helped to speed up the city’s decision-making. Today, the sensor readings have had a direct impact on public opinion. This year, we launched public ecological transport and eco-taxi, and we are launching a new system of dedicated public transport lanes that will directly affect the transition to eco-friendly modes of transportation.”

Bolat Amirgaliyev

Head of Environment Division, EcoAlmaty

"Today we have 50 Clarity sensors in Almaty that provide us with online data on the type of particles and pollution in different parts of the city. Thanks to these sensors, we can plan environmental measures in Almaty.”

Begaim Alipova

Head of Atmospheric Pollution Observation Division, Kyrgyzhydromet

"In 2020, we installed 50 sensors in the city of Bishkek. Since the Clarity Node-S sensors installed in Bishkek are small, we installed them all over the city. We placed some of them near roads, some in residential areas, and some in social facilities. Thanks to the Global SIM Card which is incorporated in the sensors, we get the data directly to our system which allows us to visualize the data. The data is ready for analysis.”

Richard Stedman

Air Pollution Control Officer at the Monterey Bay Air Resources District

"We don’t have a lot of staff time to spend setting up or fine-tuning this equipment — Clarity’s managed service model allows us to multiply the number of sensors in our network with minimal additional overhead on our end. We're going from six particulate matter monitors to more than 20 — with one placed in each local municipality — so we expect to have more granularity in looking at how smoke impacts people across our three-county jurisdiction."

Dr. Ian Longley

Principal Scientist - Air Quality, National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research

"We needed high-density data to develop a model that was representative of a real situation on a very local scale – so multiple devices and multiple locations. The Clarity Node-S was ideal for this use case."

Addressing urban air quality challenges

Cities today grapple with significant challenges posed by air quality and its impact on health, economies, and vulnerable communities. Clarity’s air quality measurement solutions provide the data required to address these challenges.

Public health costs of air pollution

Poor air quality leads to premature deaths, increased disease burden, and negative economic consequences.

Climate-vulnerable communities

Disadvantaged communities within cities are disproportionately affected by the health risks of dirty air & climate change.

Lack of air quality data

Scarce air quality data hampers effective policymaking and obstructs progress towards cleaner air.

Need for air quality targets

Setting and achieving ambitious air quality targets aligned with global standards remains a challenge for cities lacking baseline air pollution data.

Node-S, Sensing-as-a-Service solution

Air quality monitoring solutions designed for Breathe Cities
