Making clean air mainstream
...see your city with new eyes with our air quality insights
OUR SOLUTIONS FOR CITIES
We are already one step ahead of the game: In the context of ‘Dieselgate’, vehicle bans and planning the smart city, we are connecting the trends of digitisation and IoT sensor technology. That allows us to produce reliable data on air quality data – to a resolution of up to 100 x 100 metres which hasn’t yet been matched by the industry.
Our data unlocks new opportunities for localized city governance, enabling data-driven investments in new infrastructure, new eco-mobility applications and the development of new community projects.
KEY BENEFITS FOR CITIES
Street Level Sensor Data
We provide ultra high resolution air quality data. Our network of reliable low-cost sensors are placed within a city – we combine this highly reliable data with AI, machine learning and external data (i.e. satellite, geo and land use data) to create real time air quality maps.
Your API & Heatmap
Analyse the air quality in your city with our easy-to-use API and tailored heatmap: Our API connects you to an air quality database, where you can submit a query using coordinates from a particular district or city. The heatmap provides highly granular air quality measurements showing you exactly how and where pollution builds up over time.
High Data Accuracy
We run ongoing field tests to guarantee the highest reliability of our air quality data in comparison with official measuring stations. Current field tests in cooperation with the city of Bern and Swiss Post demonstrate that within the first months of testing our solution is within the category of indicative measurements.
Your Data Subscription
Integrate environmental data into your everyday decision making: on city planning, mobility and air pollution measures. You benefit from a source of high quality data by using our air quality data subscription – without the hassle of installing sensors yourself.
AIR QUALITY LEGISLATION
Air quality measurements and air pollution limits are regulated by EU directives and when it comes to IoT-based air quality monitoring, data quality can be the boom or bust of this newly emerging field. It is easy to create measurement graphs using low-cost sensors, however, truly measuring what you want to measure - whilst grasping the effects of sensor cross sensitivity, sensor drift, weather influence - requires a whole set up of different skills (find out about our team here). As a pioneer in this field, Hawa Dawa masters the balance between providing a reliable, accurate and stable solution, whilst being able to offer what we do at scale.
We have undertaken extensive testing with partners such as the Fraunhofer Research Institute, TU Munich & German & Swiss Environmental Protection Offices. This ensures that our affordable, CE certified devices provide the highest possible standard of data quality according to the EC Air Quality Directive 2008/50/EC.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
“The cooperation with Hawa Dawa has enabled us to validate important assumptions and provide a service which has a profound impact on smart city planning processes”
The Gregory Leproux
Head of the Swisscom Digital Lab
“Measuring individual exposure to individual pollutants would be worth gold.”
Prof. Dr. Hesham Nour El Din
Royal College of Physicians
“By making air pollutants, such as ground-level ozone and black carbon, visible Hawa Dawa increases our ability to reduce their impact on health and the climate”
Climate & Clean Air Coalition
“Air quality is one of the biggest challenges facing urban areas. The future of air quality monitoring could be influenced by the winner of this year’s BMVi Digital Transport Challenge: Hawa Dawa has the relevant tools with which to support political decision-makers with future planning”
Christiane Hohmeister, BMVI
