Air View Dublin: Shortlisted for Technology Ireland Award.

‘Air view Dublin’ was shortlisted for the Technology Ireland Industry Awards 2021 in the Tech4Good category.

The Air View Dublin project is a collaboration between Google and Dublin City Council as part of the Smart Dublin programme, where Google’s first electric street view car took to the streets of Dublin to measure air quality.

Air View Dublin aims to develop hyperlocal insights on air quality, with the overall objective of making air pollution data and insights available to cities and other governments, scientists, nonprofit organizations, and the public.

This is the first time the Google Street View car has been used to capture air pollution and greenhouse gas measurements in addition to Google Maps Street View imagery, a feat possible due to the integration of Google’s Street View technology into the vehicle by Jaguar Land Rover engineers.

The Jaguar I-PACE is a zero tailpipe-emissions vehicle which has been equipped with Aclima’s specialised mobile air sensing platform. Aclima’s platform analyzes and quality assures pollution measurements to develop maps of street-by-street air pollution in collaboration with Google and scientific research partners. These, in addition to air pollution insights, will be available for use by city authorities and by the public.

We would like to congratulate the winners of this year’s award, Kinia.
