Open-seneca enables people to build sensors, measure personal air pollution exposure and look at their own data. Our goals are to raise awareness, initiate a behavioural change and transfer knowledge of how to build open-source sensor hardware.
We use affordable, off-the-shelf particulate matter sensors, geo location and wireless transmission modules for our devices. The collected data is displayed on dynamic maps on our online platform for identification of pollution hotspots. The sensor design is co-creation-based and tailored to local requirements to achieve a globally compatible and locally appropriate sensor.
We work in close collaboration with governments and environmental campaigns to drive policy towards a healthier environment. For more information visit our website or get in touch with us to establish a collaboration.
