captor-logoCAPTOR is a project funded by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 programme and started in January 2016. It will:

  • Engage a network of local communities for monitoring tropospheric ozone pollution.
  • Install a network of low-cost sensors to measure tropospheric ozone pollution, designed and maintained by European citizens in these local communities.
  • Provide high quality and reliable data about tropospheric ozone poulltion from the low-cost sensor network.
  • To engage the local communities in a collaborative learning process about air pollution, supporting a bottom-up process of defining and designing measures for action.
  • To empower citizens and engage them in promoting behavioural changes and active participation in decision making to drive solutions.

Air Quality Egg

air-quality-eggA community-led air quality sensing network that gives people a way to participate in the conversation about air quality.

The Air Quality Egg is a sensor system designed to allow anyone to collect very high resolution readings of NO2 and CO concentrations outside of their home. These two gases are the most indicative elements related to urban air pollution that are sense-able by inexpensive, DIY sensors.
