The air quality levels are deteriorating day by day and along with it there is a rise in the number of people afflicted with chronic respiratory and cardiac ailments. Almost 93% of our total population is breathing in toxic and polluted air and hence there is an absolute need to fix this situation. But unless we know the root cause, we won’t be able to fix it. Any solution that doesn’t address the root cause will just be a stop gap arrangement and bad air quality will definitely relapse after a while. But thanks to the growing technology and digitalization, we now have the means to understand the root cause of bad air quality and also determine the kind of pollutants that you are exposed to on an everyday basis. Here are 3 ways where you and the policy makers can benefit from reliable air quality data.

Metrics for New Policies

With an increase in vehicular traffic, it is an obvious fact that policy makers would need some means to gauge and analyze the anthropogenic emissions in the environment. This would enable them to make concrete policies and regulations to curb the level of pollutants during specific parts of the day. Deployment of air quality monitors on busy crossroads, intersections and signals can help determining pollution trends and also evaluate the highest level of pollutions during the course of a day.

Data Transparency

So you own an air quality monitor and you get regular updates on the pollution level around you. But the maximum that you can do with such data is protecting your family from exposure. But imagine if you can somehow share that data to relevant organization and policy makers that can make use of this data and do something more relevant. Since even two neighboring locations can have varied pollution data based on the wind direction, source of pollution and geographical factors, it is very essential that there is a means of determining and analyzing air quality data from a closer perspective. Where traditional methods fail to give accurate and reliable pollution-related data, API based air quality monitors are more agile and can give access to real-time data that is unbiased, complete and accurate data.


You must be aware that emissions from factories and industries account for more than 50% of the entire air pollution prevalent in India. When coupled with the fact that such factories and industries house a huge number of employee and labor force, this is also a big contributor of respiratory and other health ailments. But even while it is a major contributor of bad air quality, it often gets ignored. Tracking air quality of such regions would help in understanding the emission levels and also the safety measures taken by the factory owners in curbing pollution. A small step of installing an air quality monitor can increase accountability of the factory owners and also help in taking stringent measures in controlling pollution. Having the right kind of air quality data and insight can go a long way in minimizing air pollution levels. Sometimes all it takes to control pollutants is adjusting the existing pattern and altering the schedules of production in a factory or vehicular traffic in a particular area. In the war against pollution, you would need every help that you can get and air quality data is definitely the most reliable weapon you can equip yourself with.
