Improved air quality thanks to CO2 monitoring
How can we change our ventilation behavior with the help of objective CO2 measurements, thereby ensuring a better indoor climate in the long term and on a sustainable basis? This question is addressed in the COMo project .
COMo stands for CO2 monitoring in publicly accessible indoor spaces – so the name says it all! At this event, the results of the project will be presented by the COMo project team – made up of employees of Technologiestiftung Berlin, Berlin University of Applied Sciences and KOING GmbH.
Since late last year, the project run by Technologiestiftung has distributed carbon dioxide (CO2) sensors in publicly accessible spaces. Sensor measurements are used to determine the CO2 concentration in the interior air, which is then made available to the operators via the community-run LoRaWAN network on the COMo platform COMo platform. Since the CO2 level is directly related to air quality, the measurements can also be used to draw conclusions about how to improve the indoor climate!
We’re keen to share the results of the project with city residents. Together with the initiators of the COMo project, Dr. Ulrich Schuster and his team, we show how an open source project and the use of the existing community-operated LoRaWAN network works in practice. Dr. Schuster, CEO of KOING GmbH, will go into more detail about the technical infrastructure he and his team have created and talk about how the project is linked to the The Things Networks. Support for the project was provided by our project partner, Professor Birgit Müller of the Building Energy and Information Technology degree program at HTW Berlin, and her team. She shows what conclusions we can draw about indoor air quality based on the CO2 concentrations measured and how the results can be interpreted.
No matter what previous knowledge you have on the subject of indoor air quality and LoRaWAN: you’re more than welcome to come and join us! After all, we all want to be able to breathe easily in the rooms we spend time in every day. The number of participants is limited, so it’s worth signing up quickly.
You can sign up here! The event is free of charge and will be held in a ventilated room. We recommend wearing a mask.
