Air pollution is an increasing concern for urban areas around the world. Despite efforts to create clean, safe cities, the power of industry and consumer is needed to raise awareness about how we actually are doing in our environmental challenges.
Each jacket contains sensors that track the particulars of one’s environment. This information is tracked and merged with the readings of other jackets, forming a global data network. The crowdsourced network acts as a counterpoint to government readings, is continuously updated and can be viewed at a macro level, comparing city to city or drilled down to one’s own neighborhood.
For each bike ride, walk or jogging round instead of driving in polluted areas you will be able to follow how you and others impact the environment positively. This way, Peak allows users to know where the air quality is good or bad, putting pressure on political leaders but also making sure we individually and collectively save the environment by just having an active lifestyle.
