Atmosphere supports transition to public transport
22 March 2022
Atmosphere, a consortium of HOPU and ENGINEERING is focusing in AI4Cities Phase 2 on route flow optimisation in roads and canals/ports traffic, associating this with the transfer from private vehicles to public transport. It will provide dashboards to understand what, where and how CO2 is produced related to zonification, and how emissions can be reduced.
Atmosphere will evaluate the evolution of CO2 based on the main actions to reduce it. The tool evaluates the impact of different mobility actions to understand their effects on CO2 emissions. ATMOSPHERE will also optimise the human and economic resources, identifying how to reduce them and what actions have a better impact in the transition to more sustainable cities.
The consortium believes that its solution differs from current GIS systems, because most of these systems are blind about mobility. They do not present moving data. Atmosphere, on the other hand, measures a lot of continuous real-time data, with its systems constantly learning and updating themselves based on that information.
The solution is based on open standards/software that don’t come with any license costs, and the two companies believe that the solution has a lot of potential, even outside of AI4Cities. The global environmental sensor market is expected to grow from 1,4 billion dollar in 2021, to 2,7 billion dollar in 2027.
