Health Risks – Poor air quality and particulates

It is widely recognised that poor air quality and high levels of particulates can significantly impact an individual’s health. The WHO estimates that 7 million people die each year from exposure to fine particles in polluted air. A recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine has confirmed the association between short-term exposure to particulates and increased cardiovascular and respiratory mortality. The significant health risk posed by pollution is a crucial driver behind IoT air quality monitoring, electric vehicles and renewables.

IoT project completed by students at University College Isle of Man (UCM)

Computer Science Degree (BSc) students have completed the first IoT project at the University College Isle of Man (UCM). As part of the Experiential Learning module, the project seen students work with real clients to deliver a project within 6-weeks.

Through the IoT partnership with UCM, Manx Technology Group (MTG) provided the students with Libelium Smart EnvironmentLibelium Parking sensors. Students access the sensor data through MTG’s IoT cloud environment; as a result of using the cloud environment, the students have a platform to analyse the data in real-time. Read more

Monitoring the indoor environment with IoT

IoT sensors offer an inexpensive way of monitoring the indoor environment; with battery-powered sensors able to monitor temperature, humidity, CO2, room occupancy and light levels. Due to Covid restrictions, many of you will be working home like me. To demonstrate the effective use of the technology, I installed a single IoT sensor in my home office to highlight the different use cases and value of IoT. I then look at some applications of IoT in healthcare, business and the public sector.
