Piera Systems’ Canāree Air Quality Monitor is the 2023 Edge AI and Vision Product of the Year Award Winner in the Enterprise Edge AI End Products category. The Canāree family of air quality monitors (Canāree AQMs) are compact, highly accurate, and easy to use.
The Canāree AQMs are also the most innovative, cost-effective air quality monitors owing largely to the quality of the data they produce which in turn helps classify, and in some cases identify, specific pollutants. Identifying when someone is vaping in a school bathroom or a hotel room is a good example of this technology in action. Classification of pollutants is done by employing AI/ML techniques on the highly accurate data produced by the Canāree AQMs. This is the only low-cost AQM in the world with such a capability. The Canāree AQMs measure various environmental factors including particles, temperature, pressure, humidity, and VOCs. While many similar products exist in the market, Canāree is the only one with a highly accurate particle sensor which uniquely sets it apart. Canāree AQMs measure particles ranging from 10 microns in size all the way down to 100 nanometers, a unique capability in this industry. This particle data is distributed into seven size ‘bins’ and these data bins are the foundation for its classification capabilities.
“Indoor air pollution has a significant impact on human health and productivity and our unique ability to classify pollution sources while saving energy will lead to healthier spaces everywhere. We are honored to receive the Product of the Year award from the Edge AI and Vision Alliance in recognition of this unprecedented marriage of highly accurate air quality data with the latest in AI/ML techniques.”
