Indoor Air Quality
A recent study by DARPA and US transportation command concluded that circulating air within aeroplanes does not lead to the spread of coronavirus. This test used a dummy, and a bunch of sensors to replicate the scenario of a fully-loaded plane.
Meanwhile, there has been a rise in business models connected with monitoring, analysing and improving the hygiene standards of an enclosed space. Air quality monitoring startups are such beneficiaries of the pandemic.
According to the Journal of Sustainable Real Estate (Singapore), improving the internal air quality increases property value by 1.28% to 3.85%. An excellent indoor environment affects tenant-landlord relationships, employee’s health, productivity, and overall building systems.
Indoor and outdoor environment quality monitoring technology raises awareness of environmental impacts on human health, productivity, etc. and creates demand for individuals, households, and organisations to seek environment quality optimisation.
Here is a look at some exciting startups within this space;
- Connit is an IoT solutions provider offering a series of product to measure gas, pressure, temperature and air quality.
- 720.io offers cloud-based and AI-powered indoor environment monitoring software solutions, focusing on data presentation, analysis, and comparison.
- Airviz develops environmental sensing technology solutions. Product offerings include an indoor air quality monitoring device branded under Speck.
