Connected Environmental Monitoring
According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 12.6 million deaths In 2012 were attributed to unhealthy environmental conditions, that's nearly 25% of total deaths globally that year. With help from IoT technology, we can turn that trend around.
Environmental pollution poses serious challenges for cities around the world
Poor health of citizens and reduced productivity caused a $225B USD in lost labor cost in 2013
Causes lower life expectancy and premature deaths, with 3M related deaths in 2012
Negatively impacts tourism and investments
Our Connected Environmental Monitoring solution is built on the premise that IoT can solve real world problems. Driven by our IoT Accelerator, this offering provides cities with a holistic solution to monitor air and water quality and noise pollution. With data-driven insight, cities can make better decisions, reduce costs and develop proactive pollution control strategies.
A smart solution for smart cities
Solving problems becomes easier when you have a metric by which to measure success. Once you define the metrics, you need tools and methodologies to collect data.
Next, you need ways to translate that data, make it easy to understand, and use it as base for action. When you track your actions, you can identify areas where you need to improve. With data to back you up, you can also demonstrate the value of your actions and investments.
Connected Environmental Monitoring gives you the tools to do all that. This is off-the-shelf solution has undergone successful pilot programs in Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden, Montreal and Ottawa, Canada, Tilburg, Netherlands and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Adopting Connected Environmental Monitoring will your city the list of smarter, cleaner and more desirable cities.
