Drayson Technologies, the tech firm founded by Lord Paul Drayson, has signed a partnership with a private car hire company to monitor air pollution levels around London.
Its new agreement with Greentomatocars will see Drayson attaching its CleanSpace Tag air pollution sensors to the green private hire company’s fleet, creating a mobile sensor network that will monitor pollution levels across the capital.
The Internet-of-Things (IoT) sensor network will help to create a hyperlocal map of air pollution, allowing policymakers and residents to glean a better understanding of the issue, and inform Greentomotocars’ drivers best practice such as when to turn on electric mode in their vehicles.
Data from the sensors will also be fed into Drayson’s CleanSpace Air Map, giving Londoners hyperlocal information on pollution levels and identifying potential exposure risks in areas around schools, hospitals and other areas.
Lord Paul Drayson, Chairman and CEO of Drayson Technologies, commented: "Our aim at Drayson Technologies is to map the personal health space by collecting data on both the environment and health.
