The SODAQ AQM plays a collective role in raising awareness about the state of air pollution in individuals' direct environment. We have now added a special click-in casing that also works as a solar-powered charging station that can be used to build your own stationary air-quality monitoring system. On top of this, the SODAQ AQM if attached to a bike, also has the ability to gather data about the quality of biking roads using an advanced accelerometer.
At the core of the SODAQ AQM's technology is our advanced LTE-M connectivity, which is similar to the ones on mobile phones but made specifically for low-powered Internet of Things devices. Air is measured every ten seconds and the data is sent to the Data Platform every minute. Additionally to measuring particulate matter the SODAQ AQM also has sensors that measure: Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), temperature, humidity, and pressure.
The latest version of the SODAQ AQM now shows real-time Particulate Matter readings using an LED Indicator. Lighting on the device changes color depending on particulate concentration levels, truly communicating with the user. Furthermore, the SODAQ AQM was designed to comply with IP34 standards, meaning it is splash-proof and dust-resistant.
