Smart City Sensing
Thermal Screening of Physical Objects and Air-quality at Urban Scale
A novel approach for accurate outdoor thermal comfort evaluation…
We address innovations in acquisition and sensing as well as densification of geo-referenced city-related data with novel processing chains in city data analytics. The core of the methodology lies in an urban-district-wide thermal data acquisition from aerial images resulting in a 3D thermal and air pollutant representation of urban structures. We address a selected and local scale densification of city data by proposing a three-dimensional microclimate and air-quality model that represents a volumetric model of air- and surface-temperatures as well as of air-quality related measurements at various height levels.
Innovating to combat the urban heat island effect
Urban heat islands and pollution, have become major issues for the urban environment, seriously affecting the health, well being and productivity of millions of people. We provide city authorities and urban planners with an innovative data-driven process chain to capture the current state of urban quarters, regarding thermal conditions, air pollution levels and sources, providing essential information for decision-makers in order to improve the actual state. We offer in-depth analysis of the causes and dependencies of surface temperature levels, especially of rooftops and streetscapes.
