What is the objective of the pilot?
Alongside official measurement methods and monitoring systems developed, there is real need for reliable and flexibly expandable, scalable alternative environmental monitoring solutions. Obviously, these solutions can only complement and cannot replace existing measurement points and monitoring systems whereby they enable higher resolution data collection in time and space, thus contributing to more efficient obtainment and processing of information and thereby allowing for quicker and more effective decision-making.
sharing measured data
real-time analysis, prediction
The measurements carried out by official bodies and authorities are relevant to the conventional application of environmental monitoring systems. These systems can provide high-precision measurement data, which are, however, of low resolution in time and space. Additionally, it is difficult to access (relatively heterogenous) data sources in a way making it available for the third party.
The necessity of e-participation
The regional settlement population directly perceives environmental impacts on their living space, but they are not sufficiently involved in the assessment and decision-making processes related to the region. In most cases, the population only has the opportunity to raise questions and to receive ex-post communication.
The need for increased efficiency
When environmental incidents and impacts emerge that negatively affect the quality of life, the implementation, monitoring or back testing of decision-making mechanisms of the competent bodies and authorities and the related measures ordered/planned (not to mention the actual solution of the problem and its communication) are very lengthy processes (extending over months or even years).
Residential monitoring system
The accelerated progress in cost-effective sensor technologies and big data technologies allows local population to be involved in automated environmental data collection as well as in recording and sharing of detections, moreover even in processing and evaluation of data. The system developed enables flexibly expandable data input as well as scalable and real-time data processing to the widest circle of users.
