This document provides information, guidance and specifications of requirements and options on how to set up an air quality (emissions) management policy, and how to deploy reliable and scalable technologies to monitor air quality on a continuous or regular basis, and to react with adequate measures.
This document defines technological concepts that provide reliable and open data, and defines the functional requirements on measurement devices that produce such data. This provides a means to measure the air quality required by relevant EU directives.
This document provides information and specifications enabling to specify air quality levels for triggering a scenario.
Specifically, this specification provides a toolkit of parameters and data definitions that a regulator can use to e.g.
- define proper air quality measures, suitable for a street, zone or the whole city
- inform a driver in advance of entry to a Controlled zone about air quality level and related policy measures expected to be in operation at a given time, e.g. higher parking price per location due to the adverse air quality; and of the time windows of the measure operation of the controlled zone
- inform the relevant city departments on the introduced measure, air quality levels and number of vehicles entered.
In order to maximize European harmonization, it is recommended that this specification is used in combination with a module of standardized data concepts, i.e. an "air quality management data dictionary" (AQMDD), however, this version of this document, which is focussed on policies and procedures, does not provide these data concept specifications.
