Bettair Cities S.L. is a hard-tech company located in Barcelona whose mission is to provide cities with a tool to map air and noise pollution at a high spatial and temporal resolution. After the completion of CITI-SENSE European project, in which Bettair participated through its parent company, and after the interest raised from the market, key members from the management and technical team decided to proceed with commercial use of this technology.
In the trajectory of the company, several pilots to monitor air quality in different European cities have been carried out. The most relevant pilot is the ongoing pilot in the city of Barcelona, in which it has demonstrated the outstanding performance of the platform when measuring air quality with low cost sensors by achieving an impressive Pearson correlation of over r2>0.9.
Main tasks in the project
Bettair cities participates in WP2, developing the apps to record volunteer data by means of smartphone to calculate their activity index and personal exposure.
