How citizens benefiting with AQM?

User Feed-forward: A user from Gomti Nagar, Lucknow installed the AQM and using for the past 15 days. One day he looked into the LCD and saw the PM2.5 index as 88 and denoting “BAD”. He was curious to know why the spike in Air quality levels. The Spike in the PM2.5 Level was due to “Garbage Burning” near to the apartment where the user is living and Breathe forms a testimonial for the user to SOLVE the Civic issue. He was quite impressed with the nearly accurate measurements of PM2.5 index from Breathe based on the activities carried in this home/community. The below Data shows Spike in the PM2.5 Level was due to “Dump Burning” near to our office where we all live.

Some Good Air Across other Wards in my friend’s houses, schools like TVS Tumkur are other places our Breathe BREATHING.

Key point: Keeping informed with proper Data is key and Technology in combination with an exact message always brings the change and let us collect more Data (Water Samples, Potholes, Noise Levels, Traffic congestion, Garbage Burning points, Open Defecation, to name a few) and continue DENTING BIG.
