On average, air quality reduces life expectancy in the United Kingdom by 7-8 months, and has an economic cost across the European Union of an estimated €600-800 bn p.a. The ability to measure, model and manage air quality in our urban environments is of increasing importance. At the University of Leicester, we have been developing a number of technologies based around the remote sensing of nitrogen dioxide by scattered sunlight. These technologies include a ground-based hemispherical scanning imager, an airborne NO2 mapper delivering data at 20×80 m resolution, and a service which integrates air quality measurements into traffic management systems. This presentation will introduce each of these technologies, and explore potential uses of new air quality sensor networks for future city architectures in an urbanising world.
