TOP VIDEOS FOR YOUOla and Microsoft intend to study air pollution across millions of data points collected over the course of one year.
As per this initiative, sensors will be mounted on Ola cabs. The cars have been identified based on complex algorithms to ensure maximum geographical coverage of data.
“Air pollution is one of the biggest global environmental challenges of today. Most air-quality sensors today measure ambient air-quality which is not reflective of the street-level pollution people are subjected to on a daily basis. This project is part of Ola City Sense, a programme to provide intelligent data-based insights to cities,” said Anand Shah head of Ola Mobility Institute.
The data collected from the project will then be made public to help research in the area. Ola also said that the project has caught the eye of the government.
