Telent contracts with EarthSense for ITS air quality services

The air quality specialist EarthSense has announced it’ll will be supplying Telent Technology Services with its Zephyr® air quality monitors and provide data for Telent’s intelligent transport system, the Optima Hub.

It says the data will inform decisions around transport infrastructure so that pollution can be reduced.

The network of EarthSense monitors will be installed on Telent traffic signals in and around Gloucestershire and the data gathered will be integrated into the Optima Hub. The hub enables data from a range of sources to be presented and analysed to manage roadside assets such as traffic signalling, crossings and bus priority.

The companies say Zephyr on Traffic SignalEarthSense’s Zephyr® air quality monitors will provide Telent and its customers “the data they need to identify air pollution trends and hotspots and implement measures to mitigate it”.

Greg Lewis, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at EarthSense, said: “We’re pleased that our Zephyr® air quality monitors will support Telent’s Optima Hub and demonstrates the ease with which our products can integrate with client systems.

“Along with data from other assets such as CCTV and traffic signal controllers, the measurements our monitors provide will help Telent’s customers, such as local authorities, have a complete awareness of their roadside infrastructure.”

EarthSense’s service helps commercial businesses and local authorities to visualise and understand the levels of air quality in their local area. The Zephyr® monitors take live measurements of harmful gases and particulates in the air, such as nitrogen dioxide (NO2), nitric oxide (NO), ozone (O3) and particulate matter (PM1, PM2.5, PM10).

Pollution measurements are supplemented by MappAir® modelling data, which provides context for locations where monitors have not been deployed. Air quality data can be accessed, analysed, and downloaded through MyAir®, which is available for businesses and local authorities to deliver live portals for the public to understand air quality in their area.
