Ola & Microsoft research Join Hands to Understand Delhi’s Pollution Level Real Time

Sharing is caring!

Taxicab aggregator Ola and Microsoft Research joined hands to measure real-time street-level air quality data in Delhi-NCR. Particulate Matter (PM 2.5) data will be collected through sensors mounted on Ola`s fleet of vehicles. Ola`s fleet of cars for this has been identified, based on complex algorithms to ensure maximum geographical coverage of data. The sensors to be mounted in the engine compartment of the cars have been custom-made by a Delhi-based company Purelogic Labs India Pvt. Ltd.

“At Microsoft Research India, we have a track record of conducting research that addresses pressing societal issues with innovative technology. The recent launch of our Societal impact through Cloud and AI (SCAI) initiative enables us to deepen our engagement with like-minded collaborators. We are excited to be partnering with Ola on the critical challenge of air pollution, leveraging their reach in the country and our expertise in edge technologies such as IoT-based sensing and AI,” Venkat Padmanabhan, Deputy Managing Director, Microsoft Research India, said in a statement.

The project is set to begin this month and is expected to collect millions of data points over the course of one year to complete the spectrum of variation in Delhi`s air-pollution.
