A call is now out for Finnish schools to participate in the experiment, which will begin next autumn and focus on improving indoor air quality.
The project involves developing innovative personalised applications and services for users by combining personal physiological measurements and sensor data on the quality of indoor and outdoor air.
VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd will carry out the Finnish pilot experiment in collaboration with three Finnish businesses: Inspector Sec Ltd, Bigdatapump Ltd and UniqAir Ltd.
"The participating schools will also get a chance to influence what kinds of future solutions for measuring indoor air quality and making use of the data will be developed in the form of various kinds of digital services, for example", explains Project Manager Kaisa Vehmas from VTT.
The pilot experiment will involve collecting information about indoor air quality using different kinds of classroom-based sensors.
Teachers will be given wearable devices for collecting personal physiological data.
