Make the invisible visible
With the highly complex GRASP algorithm, which is based on a physical model, the data of global space stations can be analysed so precisely that precise statements can be made about where the particles are located, at what altitude they float, how they are made and what they consist of (e.g. sand, fine dust or health-promoting salt particles). In this way, statements can also be made about the influence on health and weather. Previous analyses have been based on index calculations, GRASP includes nearly 50 aerosol and surface parameters, such as concentration, particle size distribution, spectral refractive index, degree of sphericity and absorption, etc. The results of the GRASP analysis have been used to determine the effects of the analysis on health and weather.
The Austrian Ambassador Dr. Michael Linhart immediately recognized that clean air has become a rare commodity and that Linz can help with a global problem. The ATMOS delegation of software and project developers, physicians and researchers presented the new technology and solutions for an increasingly serious problem, namely air pollution, to a top-class audience from business, industry, metrology and in the presence of the Austrian ambassador at the Austrian Foreign Trade Centre in Paris.
Among the guests were representatives of well-known French automobile manufacturers, hospital builders and operators, investors, municipal and city politicians, weather stations and startup hub operators who want to enter into concrete discussions with ATMOS Aerosol Research immediately.
The technology can be quickly applied in Smart City projects, for example, where intelligent traffic control or urban planning interventions in public spaces can guarantee immediate and long-term air protection.
