Air Furniture lands in La Salle Technova
The Startup Air Furniture started in La Salle Technova on February. They develop smart connected air treatment devices and polymeric formulae that can be integrated into furniture, buildings and other places to treat bad smells and aromatize spaces.
Besides that AirFurniture is working hard to develop new technologies and participate in new and exciting projects to make homes, offices and cities smarter. And one of this projects, which they are working on, is a partnership with the Viladecans Municipality and Sentilo platform to develop and place smart sensors that get accurate readings from various points of the city which provide everyone open and free access to basic information such as temperature, humidity, rainfall and even air quality throughout the city.
They have finally brought online their first ESCIRON-D1 station. Initially equipped with 3 sensors (temperature, humidity and airborne particles). ESCIRON-D1 station is still in the prototype phase under development and they expect to expand the sensor suite, improve their capabilities and precision, and expand to new locations. They also expect these to be the first in several stations that will enable Viladecans, and other cities in the future, to become smart cities. Their final goal for the smart city ecosystem is to serve as a data entry point to provide information to the smart home of the future and help it make decisions as to how to behave: turn on the heating when temperatures drop, close windows and blinds when it rains, engage air filters when air quality drops, and many other solutions. These are all better solutions than past stations, which are often several kilometers away from homes and which are often not accurate, update often enough or are simply not representative of conditions in your home.
A wide sensor suite spread throughout cities give a more representative picture of the conditions in real time. You can follow the progress through the website, then enter the physical address "Carrer de la Ciència, 49, 08840 Viladecans, Barcelona, Spain" and click on the "Anar" button.
