The nodes use LoRaWAN  communication   protocol to have the data sent to the LoRaWAN Gateways, which were part of the nationwide Internet of Things network. The gateways are linked to the Google Cloud and hooked to a platform and an application server. 

An intelligence layer was added to provide insights and predictive analytics that allow for a better decision making process.

Libelium involved in European project aiming to predict and reduce emissions utilising open source philosophy.

Air pollution is known as ‘the silent killer’ as it is not always visible, but it certainly can be deadly. Pollution causes 29% of lung cancer deaths, 24% of heart attack deaths, 25% of cardiovascular disease deaths and 43% of lung disease deaths, according to WHO (The World Health Organization).

Reducing Logistics’ environmental impact by air quality monitoring in the Baltic Sea Port of Gdansk, Poland

May 29th, 2018 – Libelium

More than 84% of world trade is mobilized by maritime transport. The integration of land transport with ports has become essential and has had an impact in the complexity of logistics connections. The dynamic nature and importance of maritime transport have repercussions on the environment in the form of noise and air pollution or traffic congestion, among others. 
Despite the fact that CO2 emissions of container vessels are, comparatively, much lower than air freight emissions, a very large 18,000 TEU container vessel emits 3 grams of CO2 per tonne/kilometer.

Recent studies also suggest that maritime transport contributes to 3.5 – 4% of the pollution with sulfur, a highly carcinogenic agent.
