Under the I-CHANGE H2020 project, Hasselt Living Lab started a campaign to collect data from meteotracker sensors and low cost air quality sensors.
The purpose of these experiments are two fold:
- to calibrate and validate the measurements obtained from these sensors by comparing measurements,
- to collect data at all bicycle paths existing in Hasselt city, so that CO2 and particular matter pollutants dynamic maps can be developed to estimate exposure of bicyclists and propose interventsions at points where large concentrations of pollutants exists.
The initial pilot campaign is kicked off by engaging univesity student population living in Hasset city. Measurements at all intersections will be collected using both sensors in a way that all bicycle routes are covered within inner and outer ring of Hasselt city.
