Die Nutzung von Sensorsystemen zur Messung der Luftqualität nimmt in den letzten Jahren stetig zu und umfasst mittlerweile viele verschiedene Anwendungsbereiche. Die zunehmende Zahl an Sensorsystemen stellt die Anwender vor neue Herausforderungen, insbesondere hinsichtlich der Auswertung, Beurteilung und Qualität der gewonnenen Messdaten.
Vor diesem Hintergrund wurde bereits im Jahr 2018 ein erster VDI Workshop „Sensormesstechnik für die Außenluft – Status, Grenzen und Visionen“ durchgeführt. Der zweite Workshop schließt an die erste Veranstaltung an. Im Gegensatz zur Veranstaltung in 2018 ist er nicht auf die Experten der KRdL beschränkt und bietet, einer Empfehlung des ersten Workshops folgend, ein Forum für den Informationsaustausch aller interessierter Fachkreise.

Frank Felten, Chief Product Officer von Hawa Dawa, wird hier einen Vortrag zum Thema “Air Quality Monitoring in Mainz – Entwicklung der Messgenauigkeit vor dem Hintergrund verschiedener Anwendungsinteressen” beitragen.

Intelligent data and, above all, AI-based solutions have the potential to make mobility more efficient, more sustainable and, above all, safer. From multimodal traffic control and intelligent mobility platforms to traffic optimization of highly complex traffic flows, there is a wide range of application areas.

Smart, networked transportation services benefit users, companies and communities alike. This also includes a further increase in the intermodality of individual routes. A balanced modal split between private motorized transport, public transport and smart solutions as well as micromobility services combined with digital, AI-based platforms contribute to a resilient and convenient overall system.
