About the Project

The WairIt project aims to develop a comprehensive solution for monitoring each individual's personal exposure to air pollution and providing personalized information so that each person is aware of the potential health effects. Monitoring of this exposure is possible with the use of wearables that will measure the most important gaseous pollutants for health (indicative PM2.5 and NOx), as will result from the analysis of user requirements and characteristics of this area.
