1000s of sensors, 3 Objectives, 1 Goal – Clean Air!

Objective 1: Nationwide Low-Cost Air Quality Sensor (LCAQS) Networks

Reducing the cost of regulatory ambient AQ requirements by 15 times through scientific validation of LCAQS

Setting up real-time air quality networks in over 8000 cities and 8000 villages of India.

Facilitating local bodies in taking informed air pollution mitigation decisions in real-time

Objective 2: Building Sensor Hardware and Data/ML Ecosystem for Industry and Citizen Science

Creating a new, highly integrated ecosystem of solutions and services, including pollution alerts, personalized route recommendations, etc.

A self-sustaining LCAQS ecosystem that will generate revenue, and provide employment opportunities

Inspiring other nations to set up their own LCAQS networks

Objective 3: Fabrication and designing of Indigenous Low-cost sensors (LCS)

Design the light source and optical routing to air chamber

Air sampling system

Scattered light detection and post-processing

Miniaturization and packaging

Our First Project – AMRIT
