Falkirk Council Collaboration: SO2 Air Quality Monitoring at Grangemouth Oil Refinery
Internal Air Quality and Sustainability
A big thanks to London IoT Meetup for inviting CEO, Bruno Beloff, to speak at the January event. Bruno’s talk title: Solving the air quality monitoring puzzle with machine learning, IoT and edge computing.
See Bruno’s talk here from 3:30 mins through to 21 minutes (Bruno’s was the first of three talks).

What’s the connection between IoT and Air Quality Monitoring?
The puzzle: up until now, the task of measuring air pollution began with a choice between expensive, bulky and delicate scientific instruments and low-cost devices that offered inadequate levels of accuracy and repeatability.
By using Amazon Web Services big data and machine learning technologies, South Coast Science developed machine learning models that corrected the errors inherent in low-cost sensor components. By deploying these models to its monitoring devices, it is able to deliver products with a precision equivalent to reference stations, together with the cost, size and price of mainstream IoT equipment.
The talk steps through the tasks, and how they were solved.
