Project Description

Carbosense proposes a worldwide unique, dense CO2 low power sensor network combined with atmospheric transport models. Carbosense is disruptive in the way we approach air quality monitoring by providing near-real time information based on 300 nodes equipped with battery-powered CO2 sensors distributed over all of Switzerland, taking advantage of the nationwide Swisscom radio transmitter locations. In addition, a dense cluster of 40 nodes will be setup in the city of Zurich, and the 300 low-cost sensor’s performance will be assured through a complementary set of up to 50 precision sensors.
