The Covid-19 pandemic confirms research approach of ATMOS Aerosol Research: using cutting-edge technology to measure air quality and the 'breathing' architecture of Coop Himmelb(l)au in order to improve prevention and the recovery of patients with respiratory diseases. Real-time data and monitoring systems will allow people to see what kind of air they are moving in and to find places for recovery - also for people recovering from coronavirus disease.
ATMOS Aerosol Research feilte die letzten Monate an einem Sensorensystem, das die Luftqualität während der Fahrt misst. Der erste ATMOScooters ist bereits auf der Straße unterwegs. In Zukunft werden die E-Scooter, neben dem Fahrdienst, wertvolle wissenschaftliche Daten sammeln, mit der die Luftqualität genauer erforscht werden kann.
The corona virus could show us in a dramatic way what we have failed to eradicate for years: air pollution. Italian scientists see a link between the severity of Covid-19 diseases and the level of air pollution. The reason: heavily pre-loaded lungs and the assumption that the virus uses particulate matter as a "means of transport", which would mean more potential sources of infection in regions such as the Po Valley. ATMOS Aerosol Research provides similar approaches here and tries to investigate the connection in more detail.
