Creating impact through collaboration
The Sniffer Bike project began as an experiment in Utrecht Region. The product comprises a small measuring device that is easily attached to a bicycle, allowing participating citizens to collect mobile data on a large scale. Think of data regarding humidity, temperature, road surface quality and air quality.
Ollie Smeenk founded SODAQ with his father. Together, they create smart solutions for acquiring data. One such solution is the Sniffer Bike.
Smeenk says: “In 2018, we designed an IoT measuring device for the Province of Utrecht to collect valuable environmental data. Using a data platform designed by Civity, everyone can follow the daily measurements and data validation is carried out by the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM). This collaboration works very well.”
