Environmental intelligence start-up Ambee provides real-time information on hyperlocal air quality with the help of a hybrid model of open data sources and its own IoT (Internet of Things) sensor network.
Basic Information
Environmental intelligence start-up Ambee provides real-time information on hyperlocal air quality. The global air-quality forecast market is estimated to be at $6 billion by 2021 and Ambee is targeting that market by providing environment data, such as temperature, humidity, UV, wind-speed, and air pollution recommendations to businesses. The Indian government has placed sensors to measure air quality across the cities. The World Health Organisation recommends a sensor every square kilometre to accurately measure air quality, an economically non-feasible option. If an individual tries to look up the air quality where they reside, the nearest sensor maybe 15 kilometres away. The company is trying to solve that problem. Ambee has built a hybrid model of open data sources and its own IoT (Internet of Things) sensor network. For every open data source, it verifies with its own IoT networks. Those sensors are, in turn, verified by colocation with a bunch of government data across the world. Ambee takes care of hyperlocal data to ensure that its measurements are separately benchmarked. Ambee was accelerated by TechStars, startup accelerator and investor in Uber, SendGrid, DigitalOcean, and PillPack. The startup's data is a total of three years of evaluation, research, data aggregation, and training artificial neural networks. It sells its data analytics to businesses.
