The recently odd-even rule in Delhi has got all eyes on the pollution check. Millions of people are at health risk as a result of air pollution exposure. Ever wondered how safe are we or how fresh is the air that we breathe? Many brands are focused on improving people’s life and highly committed to bring out solutions that can simplify their daily decision making process. One such brand is Helpchat that has recently launched a new feature for Delhi government and for the people of India in their effort to control the rising pollution problem that aims to help Indian citizens in avoiding pollution-related diseases by tracking air quality in their locality. This feature monitors the air in the surrounding environment and delivers a personalized air quality update via a mobile app.
The app tells users if the air they are breathing is toxic and suggests various ways to take precautions. The app will show the Air Quality Index (AQI) reading from 0 to 500+ (0 being the cleanest and 500 being the worst air quality) and suggest a precautionary measure depending on the air quality. Should the app sense air quality getting below a certain point, it will send an alert to your smartphone.
Kali Charan Shukla, VP, Marketing strategy, Helpchat, “We launched the ‘pollution meter’ feature to help people monitor the air in their surrounding environment and deliver a personalized air quality update to them. The core objective was to create awareness about the air that we are breathing and help Indian citizens in avoiding pollution related diseases by tracking air quality in their locality and suggesting various ways to take precautions if it finds that the air they breathe is toxic. In addition to this, the app suggests areas that a user should avoid visiting in their city so that users can plan the travel for their families and loved ones accordingly. ”
In addition to this, it also suggests areas that one should avoid visiting in their city so that users can plan the travel for their families and loved ones accordingly. The AQI index shown by the app measures a number of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon monoxide, and even cleaning agents or allergens that might affect the lungs or harm the health long term.
