Agilysis partners with Aston University

Agilysis is working with Aston University through a Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP) to create a sophisticated predictive Air Quality tool.

This tool will use live data to promote safe and sustainable travel with improvements in air quality, by allowing road authorities to strategically plan and assess the benefits of network improvements.

Air pollution has a significant effect on public health, with poor AQ being the largest environmental risk to public health in the UK, with costs of health impacts likely to exceed estimates of £20 billion a year (Royal College of Physicians). This project will help to improve transport planning decisions by being the first to apply predictive models to estimate the impact of interventions - such as low traffic neighbourhoods and school zones - on reducing emissions.

A KTP is a three-way collaboration between a business, an academic partner and a highly qualified researcher, known as a KTP associate.

Dr Maria Chli, reader in informatics and digital engineering at Aston University, says: “We are very excited to get started on this KTP with Agilysis. The project will allow us to leverage our expertise on deep neural traffic modelling and control. The key objective, a powerful predictive AQ model, will be of great benefit as a tool for improving living conditions in our cities. It will also hopefully unlock exciting research avenues on new smart cities applications.”
