AirSensa is a proprietary globally-scalable cloud platform developed with the aim to avert air pollution globally. The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that 7 million die prematurely every year because of air pollution. Lack of poor data coupled with unreliable systems makes tracking air pollution a major task. Better data can help city authorities to make effective interventions, help businesses to improve operations, and help citizens avoid the worst of pollution. The company's unique big data platform (STORRM) can scale to run hundreds of thousands of sensors and serve any number of users simultaneously while providing reliable air pollution data. AirSensa's technology can also be used to understand the impact of Covid-19, to tackle the post-Covid complications due to air pollution by providing hyperlocal, real-time information to those people as well as the existing vulnerable groups like asthmatics and heart disease patients. The company will utilise the investment to drive business development, build a post-COVID product that will lead to potentially lesser fatalities due to risk from polluted air, and ensure more people join its ecosystem.
