TERA Group (FR0013429404 – ALGTR), a major player in real-time air quality analysis, measurement and valorization, announces a strategic and commercial partnership with Flowbird.
The partnership aims to improve Flowbird’s Park&Breathe urban pollution measurement solution by integrating TERA Group’s NextPM sensors for fine particles. This operation is part of a strategy to improve the urban environment. The combination of the two partners’ expertise will offer a relevant axis of progress and concrete tools to help public decision-makers to act.
As a leader in urban mobility, Flowbird is committed to creating the city of tomorrow. With its transportation and parking solutions, Flowbird optimizes mobility in more than 4,350 cities in 80 countries, including the megacities of New York, Hong Kong and, more recently, the Principality of Monaco. In constant cooperation with local authorities, Flowbird helps to make life easier and more environmentally friendly for city dwellers.
Flowbird offers multi-sensor kits in parking meters, so that cities can better understand and act with reliable data collected at human level, by offering relevant indicators close to the citizens, through efficient supervision and decision support tools. Thanks to these sensor networks, cities will be able to measure locally and act globally in order to offer a more pleasant living environment to users.
