According to the World Health Organization (WHO), climate change could potentially increase the number of deaths from air pollution by hundreds of thousands between 2030 and 2050. The global air pollution problem extends to the majority of countries around the world. Studies have consistently estimated that 95 percent of the global population is breathing dirty and harmful air. Air pollution also causes a decline in human intelligence and an increased risk of global diabetes. In order to fight this global risk, cities around the world are taking a step forward using technology and smart city initiatives to reduce air pollution. Energy & Environment Mobile operators are helping smart city governments to reduce air pollution using predictive Internet of Things (IoT). Sensors provide updates on air pollution in real-time, enabling accurate monitoring. Artificial Intelligence-assisted (AI) monitoring platforms assess big data feeds and enable smarter analysis using machine learning of weather and traffic commuter information to help predict areas of poor air quality. The information is then used by local governments to reduce pollution by reducing traffic and output from factories. Predictive IoT is applied in areas such as disease control, weather and natural disaster management, and traffic optimization in smart […]
