Future Fleets: How Clean Air Innovations Are Driving Smarter, Healthier Cities

A new report from EDF and co-authored by Geotab shows how public and commercial fleet vehicles can revolutionize the way air pollution is monitored and measured across the U.S.

The report reveals that by combining mobile air quality sensors with connected vehicle technologies, city vehicles in particular could measure air pollution at an unprecedented scale. The findings shows that just 10 to 20 vehicles could, without changing their regular routes, map 50 to 70 percent of a city.
