Scientists from EarthSense Systems were featured in a week-long schedule of reports on air pollution shown on the BBC One News at Six. In the first in the series, David Shukman explores the potential issue of air pollution and school children. He explained how students at a secondary school in North West Leicestershire used a new air quality sensor to measure pollution levels along a busy street in Leicester. The geographically referenced information was then automatically transmitted to the EarthSense laboratory for analysis. The equipment used in the project was the Zephyr sensor developed by EarthSense Systems, which accurately measures pollutants Nitrogen Dioxide and Ozone.
