Traffic and pollution
200 devices

The pilot will focus on providing the Ringsend community the tools to hearing their unheard voices. The Telraam sensors will be used to count both private traffic and on-road freight traffic while the citizen science environmental sensors developed as part of iSCAPE will be used to monitor air (NOx, PM1, PM2.5 and PM10) and noise pollution. This will establish a link between cause (traffic) and effect (local pollution) and thus provide evidence to support the local community concerns about the liveability of the area. UCD will analyse the collected data and link it to local meteorology and urban geometry to establish a more robust link between the measured data. UCD will work closely with the local community and organise data storytelling workshops, which will allow to periodically calibrate the sensors
