The objective of PASSPARTOUT project is to realise the first 3D mobile optical gas analyser network capable of operating in an urban area. This will be done to monitor and reduce air pollution in terms of toxic gas molecules, one of the major causes of premature mortality. Real time pollution monitoring with high spatial resolution and public alerts is vital to minimise the exposure of the population, particularly the vulnerable, to air pollution. PASSEPARTOUT improves the development and deployment of miniature, hyperspectral optical-based sensors based on Quartz Enhanced Photo-acoustic Spectroscopy and Photo-Thermal Interferometry for a wide range of ambient pollutants.
The project has received funding from the “European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme“.
