Why they would like to become members of SWM:
PASS provides a Good fit to SWM. PASS Consortium works collaboratively with leaders in air quality science and technology. PASS objectives are fully aligned to SWM 2030 road map objectives of clean travel as well as clean air and water.
Currently, approximately 5% of UK has Air Quality Sensors whilst 95% of UK has yet to be covered. The cost of covering the remaining areas with Air Sensors in the future will be cost prohibitive and almost impossible due to government’s budgetary constraints. PASS Consortium innovations may be able to deliver the solutions which will not only cover areas with Air Quality sensors but also areas that don’t have Air Quality sensors.
The PASS innovative technology would provide historic, “live” and future predictive data with features that enable local councils to plan better strategies for travel and traffic management as well as provide adequate data to enable their citizens to understand the levels of air pollution they are exposed to so that they can implement mitigation strategies.
PASS Consortium will utilise not only BigData from existing air quality sensors but also Ai, GIS, traffic and weather data to ensure accurate pollution level data can acquired to feed into the Citywide Analytic Dashboard (CAD) and the mobile app.
What Value PASS can provide to SWM? PASS can deliver a unique advantage and cost savings to SWM in sharing its data, which has been cleaned and is usable. Currently, up to 30-40% (some estimates put this figure of 50%) of data acquired via existing sensors has quality issues. The availability of the data via the CityWide Analytic Dashboard for the Birmingham to start off with but later to make this available to the rest of the regional could help SWM with much refined air quality strategies. PASS can add great value to SWM!
