We have had the pleasure to be visited by KNMI (Royal Netherlands Meteorological Institute) representatives this week for a workshop on developing their novel NO2 sensor. We had a very productive workshop on practical design, measurement principles, project planning and also touching on eventual business ventures.
NO2 (Nitrogen dioxide) has a strong negative health effect. Due to a degradation time measured in minutes or hours and the low background levels, NO2 is a clear indicator of nearby pollution. The gas is almost exclusively produced from combustion, making the sources easy to pinpoint. This makes sampling NO2 suitable to make detailed maps of urban pollution.
Here is our overview of the work needed to develop a sensor from idea to product. The text is based on the experience of Sparv Embedded, but is valid for any project.
Please get back to us if you have any thoughts or inputs.
Sorry for not updating this blog too often.
We will be out of the office most of the time between December 21st – January 2nd. We will get back to you as fast as we can. We hope all of you will have a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year!
Exciting times ahead!
The Sparv team
We have changed product name for the UAV sensor system from Sparv Sensors to Sparvio. Have a look at the new web page windsond.com/sparvio. We hope you like it.
Summer is soon here and as usual our team will be on summer vacation. We will leave the office mid July and be back mid August.
You are still welcome to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, but we can’t give you our usual, fast response time.
Have a great summer!
The Sparv Team
Researchers from Penn State University used Sparv’s novel instrument “Swarmsonde” for a research project earlier this year. The purpose was to capture thermodynamic data within and around a tornado. The data obtained will help explain how tornadoes are formed. This new instrument can measure up to 32 sondes at the same time and stay in the air for more than an hour. Click on Swarmsonde for specifications about the sounding tool.
News article from MTWE:
Sparv Embedded will have a booth (no. 4018) at the MTWE event in Amsterdam (October 10-12), and also hold a presentation on October 11th at 10.30 on Sparv Sensors.
If you will be there, we’d like to meet you! Please notify Anders at email@example.com if you are coming and want to meet.
All the best,
Almost all of the Sparv team will be on summer holiday July 17 – August 14. It will be very nice after a fun but stressful spring. We will have limited access to email. For inquires, try firstname.lastname@example.org. That is your best chance to get a response. We will try to answer your emails as fast as we can!
Have a great summer!
