The SODAQ AIR plays a collective role in raising awareness about the state of air pollution in individuals' direct environment. We have now added a dedicated click-in casing that also works as a solar-powered charging station that can be used to build your own stationary air-quality monitoring system. On top of this, the SODAQ AIR if attached to a bike, also has the ability to gather data about the quality of biking roads using an advanced accelerometer.
At the core of the SODAQ AIR's technology is our international LTE-M or Narrowband connectivity, which is similar to everyday mobile phones but made specifically for low-powered Internet of Things devices. Air is measured every ten seconds and the data is sent to the Data Platform every minute. Additionally to measuring particulate matter the SODAQ AIR also has sensors that measure: temperature, humidity, indoor air quality (IAC and b-VOC) and barometric pressure.
The latest version of the SODAQ AIR now shows real-time Particulate Matter readings using an LED Indicator. Lighting on the device changes colour depending on particulate concentration levels, truly communicating with the user. The SODAQ AIR is small, rechargeable, easy to use. It was designed to comply with IP34 standards, meaning it is splash-proof and dust-resistant.
