Do you know about 92 per cent of the population are breathing in unhealthy air, and that 17,280 people die from air pollution every day?
It might sound like a bit of an exaggeration, but it is a fact that air pollution causes more deaths than malaria, AIDS and road accidents combined. Inhalation of bad air leads to the death of millions of living creatures every year.
The problem is more severe in Asia, with Indian and Chinese cities among the most affected. Thousands of people die/develop chronic ailments from breathing polluted air in cities like Shanghai, Beijing, Delhi, Bangalore and Mumbai. Respective governments have taken a number of measures to check the problem, but they have yielded little results, and the problem is going from bad to worse. As per some studies, Bangalore and Delhi will become unliveable by 2030, and the situation is alarming.
While a permanent solution is far-fetched, a timely and regular update of the quality of air in our vicinity could help us make a sound decision and improve our environment. That is why this IoT device monitors air quality using laser tech that counts each individual air particle.
