Preparing for launch in 1... 2... 3... 2018!

The first hackAIR sensors are up and running in Athens, Oslo and Berlin, and our servers are already analysing more than 12.000 images daily to estimate air quality from the colour of the sky (it works!). Our developers are ironing out the last bugs, polishing the final features and preparing for the launch of the hackAIR platform.

Until then, we're happy to share what we have learned in the past months. Many of you have participated in our survey on awareness and engagement on air quality, and we have benchmarked the hackAIR sensor prototypes against reference equipment. Read on - and hit 'reply' if you have any questions!
