Info Session On New Citizen Science Pilot In Sint-Niklaas (16/5)

Participants at a data cafe discussing citizen science results

The city of Sint-Niklaas has piloted new traffic measures in a bid to make the school environment in the Vogelkeswijk neighbourhood safer and healthier.

COMPAIR will be assisting the local authority to understand their impact.

  • Will the new circulation plan result in less cut-through traffic?

  • Is the new 30 km/h speed limit effective overall?

  • Has air quality improved and, if so, by how much?

These are the sort of questions that our citizen science will help find answers to.

10 local residents are already counting traffic in and around Vogelkeswijk with a smart traffic sensor Telraam. In addition, the Flemish Environment Agency has attached to four lamp posts a solar powered OnePlanet air quality sensor to measure nitrogen dioxide (NO2).

If you live in the area and want to know more, come along to an info session scheduled for 16 May 2024 at 19:00-21:00 (venue tbc).

What to expect? Information and discussion on

  • Policy measures implemented

  • Sensor devices used

  • Preliminary findings from traffic measurements

  • How to assemble your own air quality sensor to measure particulate matter (PM)

  • Participation opportunities: you can use an assembled PM sensor or borrow a mobile device to measure air quality on the move

Refreshments are on us! Good vibes guaranteed 😊
