  • This location is shown only to members

Welcome to the intheAIR meetup series hosted by uAbureau and COSM.

This Meetup is the second in a series of events hosted here in the IOT/BCN Meetup community over the weekend starting Friday 26th October - Sunday 28th October, exploring and investigating open communitiessensor networks and urban infrastructure centred around monitoring and communicating airborne pollutants + measuring air quality.

Special Guests from COSM and IOT/MADRID Meetup communities will also be participating, reaching out to help us ignite an on-the-ground IOT Barcelona Community.


Air Quality Egg

The Air Quality Egg is a project aiming to give citizens a way to participate in the conversation about air quality. It is composed of a sensing device that measures the air quality in the immediate environment and an on-line community that is sharing this information in real-time.

It is a community-developed, open source project that is driven by people who care about the air they breathe. Come join us in implementing Barcelona’s first open community sensor infrastructure!

    Good to meet James and generally the others that attended. Also good the tour and of course, the drinks and pica pica. Not so good the presentations, as i could not hear that well for various reasons and not so interested in what they talked about it.

    A big thank you to all the speakers who are all members of this meetup, Maria from Urbiotica... Tomas from FabLabBCN... Ed Borden from Cosm... Sara + Cesar from IOT Madrid! It was a great session with lots of devices on show with a little peek inside some pre-released research + development of their Air Quality initiatives...

    Amazing tortilla, amazing fuet, amazing Moritz, amazing quicos and amazing people sharing a lot of knowledge. If Joe Justice was here he would say it was "so awesone as a Tommy Bear holding hands with a shark in front of a supernova explosion" or something like this.
