Although the main sources of air pollution are known and the first is represented by vehicular traffic, to effectively tackle the problem we have deemed necessary:  improve the knowledge of pollution in qualitative and quantitative terms at adequate levels of spatial and temporal detail; have tools that can support local authority decisions; resort to widespread sharing and participation of communities.
AIR-HERITAGE foresees the development of an innovative, pervasive and versatile way of monitoring air quality that is integrated with the ordinary institutional monitoring. Through the modeling of the data collected with respect to the context and the preparation of a decision support tool that can be used by both public administrators and citizens, they will be able to adopt the most appropriate choices and behaviours. Citizens themselves will be able to compete directly in monitoring using portable detectors. Local communities, in a complementary and synergic way, will be sensitized to adopt virtuous behaviour.
