Students are invited to support the Baggator Youth Group and Residents Against Dirty Energy (RADE) Bristol campaign for better air.

The groups use sensors to measure traffic and air pollution in their area to support their campaign efforts. The sensors are linked to the Luftdaten community, as well as the Telraam traffic data project, where the information is updated continuously and made available online. Air pollution data can be accessed on the Luftdaten pages, whilst life traffic data is available on the Telraam pages.

As the project has been running for a while, many of the sensors don’t work as well as they used to. UWE Bristol students are invited to support RADE to help fix the faulty sensors, helping the group to improve the quality of the collected data, which plays a key role in their campaign efforts.

The group will be running two sensor repair sessions on Saturday 15 November at St Mark’s Baptist Church in Easton. 

  • Session one will take place from 10.30 to 12.30.
  • Session two is from 13:00 to 15.00.

Students can attend either one or both sessions depending on their availability.

The session will be led by a technician from the School of Engineering who will guide participants through the repairs, so no previous experience is required.

This is a great opportunity to learn some practical repair skills of electronics, whilst connecting with and supporting the community of East Bristol in their efforts to improve the air quality for its residents.

There will be food provided on the day and travel costs can be reimbursed.
