We’re very proud to announce our partnership with two highly innovative British Tech companies to undertake the largest air pollution research project ever to take place in London. Gophr is providing cycle couriers with CleanSpace tags and Inmarsat LORA moats to track air pollution levels across the city, enabling them to conduct the most detailed study of air quality levels ever undertaken in the city.
The partnership came about when Lord Drayson of Drayson Technologies and Freevolt – makers of the CleanSpace tag – and myself were introduced through a mutual friend who had the rather brilliant idea of us working together to this end. Inmarsat approached us separately within weeks. We invited everyone around to meet and decided to pool all our resources together to get the best possible outcome.
Results of the study will come about in September. More on that when it comes about. In the meantime if you’d like to take part you can always purchase a CleanSpace tag here, and if you cycle a lot of miles per week please get in touch with us to get involved. There are some pretty snazzy cycle jerseys up for grabs too (see below).
CleanSpace™ is an IoT sensor network to monitor air pollution. It uses a machine-learning network of connected smart sensors powered by Freevolt to create the world’s most advanced map of air pollution to enable people to “see the air they breathe” and to help enterprises and municipalities implement projects that improve air quality. CleanSpace was designed and built by Drayson Technologies and launched in the UK in Q4 2015.
