Air Quality Monitoring

UK DELIVERY company DPD is launching an air quality monitoring programme across six UK cities.

‘Project Breathe’ is live in London with 100 mobile air quality sensors on the roof of DPD vans and 20 fixed units on DPD PickUp shops close to schools and play areas.

This month, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Glasgow and Cardiff will join the ground-breaking initiative, creating a network of over 400 sensors in total, delivering 1.5m pollution readings a day.

The sensors, the size of a broadband router, take readings every 12 seconds to provide real time data designed to help visualise the air quality issue and identify hotspots.
