Creating a global air quality sensor network with the help of citizen science

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.

Designing mobile low-cost sensors collaboratively to fit local needs

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.

Generating impact by informing policymakers

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.
