This air quality monitoring network in Alaquàs (Valencia) provides the town with information on atmospheric and meteorological variables. To achieve this objective, fixed sensors have been installed at various points in the population. The integration and sending of data are done via Rest API to the city’s Smart City platform. All this deployment is developed within the “Environmental Monitoring System Project” (Smart Cities 2019 of the Valencia Provincial Council).
Alaquàs City Council needed an autonomous air quality monitoring system capable of providing air pollution and weather values. The aim was for the municipality to have its own management resources. The solution adopted consisted of its own monitoring system using a network of air quality sensors. Thus, with the provision of infrastructure and resources, it is now possible to record data on the concentration of gaseous pollutants and particulate matter. In this way, in addition to strengthening local capacities, the measurement and monitoring systems of the supra-municipal bodies are also complemented.
