Recommended requirements

Proposal  based on the discussions during the meeting (18/10/2018)

  • Measurements with diffusion tubes in the surroundings of the schools (e.g. neighborhood profile)
  • Co-location with official measurement station(s) (‘real world’ calibration)
  • Use of shelter to protect the tubes
  • Low cost sensors for measurements over time to monitor peak levels (of PM and/or NO2)
  • Co-location with stations measuring meteorological parameters (temperature, humidity, pressure…), particularly if sensors are used
  • Counting of different vehicle types (easy to do)
  • Use only one methodology for collecting the (measurement) data
  • Links to media (newspapers, radio, TV, social media etc.)
