With the launch of its “Air Quality of Things” hyper-accurate, street-level view of air quality, air quality data – including historical, real time, and forecast – is available to businesses and municipalities via the the company’s API and HyperCast software. Users can see the air quality information on ClimaCell’s B2C app or on an interactive, real-time air quality map on the company’s website, searchable by location anywhere in the world.

To accomplish this, says the company, it takes Weather-of-Things data – from wireless signals to connected cars, airplanes, drones, and IoT devices – and makes sense of it using proprietary, high-resolution models, and then analyzes air pollutants – including Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) and Fine Particulate Matter (PM2.5) – via this lens.

“Air quality impacts everyone’s lives in ways big and small, and the recent fires in the Amazon are just one reminder of its impact,” says Shimon Elkabetz, the CEO and Co-Founder of ClimaCell. “ClimaCell is uniquely positioned to leverage its one-of-a-kind Weather Operating System to provide historical, real-time, and forecasts of air quality anywhere in the world.”

To celebrate the launch, the company has created an air quality map of New York City highlighting the “air quality gems” that people can visit to take a clean air break. Ahead of the United Nations Climate Summit in New York City, the company is partnering with on-demand ride sharing company Via to encourage a more sustainable form of transit across the city as compared to riding private with a 15% discount on up to two shared rides to-or-from 10 select secret air quality gems in New York City from September 20 to 27th using the code “VIAGREEN19.”

“We’re delighted to be celebrating this launch by partnering with Via,” says Elkabetz, “a company that is working every day to make transportation more efficient and our world greener. At the end, knowledge is power, and we hope that people, businesses and municipalities can leverage this accurate air quality information to avoid (or address) air quality issues, and also seek out and enjoy places with good air quality.”

The company says that industries from transportation and on-demand companies to technology apps and outdoor events can use its air quality information to notify their customers of changing air quality conditions, enhance engagement, customize and differentiate their products, and seize business opportunities. In addition, cities and municipalities can use the information to provide residents with real-time and forecast information on air quality and use the information to take corrective steps where air quality is poor.

In fact, says the company, anyone who wants some clean air can use its air quality information to find the “air quality gems” anywhere in the world.
