IoT measurement method meets legal requirements to prove compliance with air pollutant limits.
Hawa Dawa has been the first provider in Europe to be certified by an independent state-approved body for the legally prescribed measurement accuracy of its IoT sensor measuring networks. TÜV Süd certifies: Hawa Dawa achieves the quality objectives of the 39. BlmSchV (the national implementation of the EU directive 2008/50/EG ).
In the evaluation, TÜV Süd used measurement data of a period of 12 months. For this purpose, the NO2 (nitrogen dioxide) values measured by Hawa Dawa were compared with the values of an official measuring station.
Hawa Dawa has added real-time pollutant data, which is available through an API, to the well-established HERE Marketplace. The HERE platform‘s Marketplace offers secure data exchange, essential location data and technology, and a rich ecosystem of partners providing additional content. Hawa Dawa‘s API products enhance the value of applications for users by integrating full-coverage air quality information, which is compiled from a comprehensive set of input sources ranging from satellites to ground–based public measurement stations to IoT sensors.

The winterly weather conditions made the difference in handling and convenience particularly obvious. While tube collectors require a lot of manual handling – including collecting them one-by-one – the Hawa Dawa solution delivers the air quality information conveniently to your desk.
This is only one of the benefits. Additionally, traditional tube collectors deliver one average value of NO2 concentration per month, whereas Hawa Dawa includes PM2.5, PM10 and O3 real-time values at any time.
And the cost? The total cost of ownership for the Hawa Dawa solution is about 50% of the tube collector’s cost.

About Fraunhofer Morgenstadt:
In the “Morning City Initiative”, the Fraunhofer Society develops the solutions for the city of the future together with partners from industry and municipalities.
Cities are the future of humanity. More than half of the world’s people already live in cities; in Germany, it is as much as 70 percent. They are all looking for security and prosperity, education and networking and the urban lifestyle, in short: quality of life. In a limited space, more and more people want to take advantage of the chances of a good life. Social division must be avoided and a sustainable use of natural resources must be achieved. Thus, all areas from waste to energy, governance, mobility and water supply are relevant in the process of sustainable urban development towards a smart city of the future.
