Toulouse Métropole selects Ellona, specialist in Environmental Intelligence, for the development of the Montaudran eco-district. The company will be responsible for collecting data relating to polluting gas emissions as well as noise and olfactory nuisances to improve the living environment of the inhabitants.
The metropolis of Toulouse is on the way to smart cities. It has just formalized a partnership with Ellona for its “Night Flight” project in the heart of the Toulouse Aerospace eco-district on the historic site of Montaudran, bringing together a set of innovations to imagine and test digital layouts. In this context, the company will be responsible for “Making the invisible visible”, specifying gases, particles, noise, odors and allergens in real time. The necessary data will be transmitted to those responsible for operations, as well as to citizens and collaborators, in order to make the spaces “healthier, smarter and safer”underlines Jean-Christophe Mifsud, CEO of Ellona.
In concrete terms, the operation will consist of succeeding outdoors with a network of several WT1 sensors, detecting gas, particle, noise and odor emissions. These sensors will be installed on various sites of the eco-district, including the Rocade sites, the areas of the B612 Innovation Center building, the Envol des Pionniers and as far as the grain hall in the heart of Toulouse.
This operation also assesses the indoor environment. To do this, several POD2 measuring devices will be installed in public buildings and performance halls, in particular at the Media Library and the Halle aux Grains. These sensors make it possible to map emissions and identify sources of nuisance (volatile organic compounds, toxins, noise, odors, allergens).
