We want to make air quality monitors accessible to everyone, everywhere
By connecting science, technology and society, we want everyone to have access to air quality data in a simple and effective way. Facing the air pollution problem as a community will help us generate a positive change in the near future.
To face a problem, we must first recognise it. More than 80% of people living in urban areas are exposed to air quality levels that exceed the WHO´s guideline limits. However, most cities do not have a monitoring system to inform their citizens about the quality of air they breathe.
Using a new generation of laser particle counters we want to provide real-time measurement of particulate matter in the air (PM10, PM2.5 and PM1). Neuer Weg modules are easy to install and only require a power outlet and WiFi.

Make the invisible visible!
All the sensors are tested and calibrated on-site using Federal Reference Instruments for air quality monitoring.
The NW Prototype
Equipped with two optical sensors to detect particulate matter in the air (PM10, PM2.5 and PM1.0). An alternative version also hosts a NDIR CO2 sensor.
The module has an auxiliary ventilation sampling system to allow a fast response to changes in air pollutant concentrations.
A humidity, atmospheric pressure and temperature sensor complements the measurements and serves to perform post-processing of data considering climatic interferences.
The module architecture helps to achieve uniform air circulation through it obtaining more accurate measurements. The construction material ensures the thermal insulation of the sensors inside the module.
Built-in WiFi enables the sensor to transmit data to the Neuer Weg Map, where it is stored and made available to everyone in any smart device.
For locations with limited or no WiFi access, Neuer Weg module incorporates an SD card, allowing the sensor to record and store data locally.
Easy installation in public spaces, at street lights and on city furniture.
Be part of the change!
Don't adapt, change the game!
Many cities and even countries do not have the possibility of having the expensive conventional air quality monitoring stations. Our intention is to reach those places to help provide answers and transparency on an affordable budget.
We can all be part of this hyperlocal air quality monitoring network and take part of the solution to the problem of air pollution.
We invite NGOs, City Authorities, Enthusiasts, Environmentalists and Scientists to be part of this paradigm shift. Be part of the Neuer Weg Project!
