San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
The 'Internet of Things' is creating new digital technologies to monitor air quality and air pollution. Analogue technologies - gas diffusion tubes - have been used for many years. Is the old technology about to be superceeded by the digital? Or are the two approaches complementary?
Jonathan Callway from the Putney Society will describe the use of gas diffusion tubes for air quality campaigning in Putney - with a good outcome. Andrew Wood from Network for Clean Air will describe the Air Quality Egg - one of the new digital technologies. Find out about the differing technologies. Join the debate.
Public meeting - all welcome. No charge.
