Oizom's patent pending technology is disrupting the Ambient Air Quality monitoring market. The company's Polludrone is a space saving and cost effective device that bring clear value to potential smart cities around the world. Oizom was also the only Cleantech startup from India to be selected for Hello Tomorrow Global Summit in Paris.
Oizom envisages to make the Environment understandable and predictable through a dense network of Polludrones, low cost solar powered air quality monitoring devices which can easily set up in the current city infrastructure.
“Current Air-Quality Monitoring Solution is not Scalable and Sustainable because of Exorbitant Cost, Space Occupation, Energy Consumption and Heavy Operation Cost. Polludrone fits in existing infrastructure (retrofit) and does not occupy any space and manpower. By installing Polludrones, the government authorities and smart cities will have a dense network of data points which will give them a pollution map of the city. Based on which they can take relevant infrastructure and policy level changes,” says Ankit Vyas, CEO,Oizom.
