UrVAMM develops a novel way for environmental monitoring in cities. Its technology is integrated into public local vehicles (i.e. buses, waste-collection vehicles, other vehicles for local services) with two main aims: real-time moving monitoring of air quality and the control of emissions by means of efficient driving with their own technology.

The UrVAMM system installs on board an efficient-driving assistant together with an environmental monitoring device. This creates an environmental solution that reaches almost the whole extension of the city. Monitoring pollutants on the road allows for the accurate sampling of the levels established in environmental regulations, without mitigating circumstances such as distance or vegetation.

The UrVAMM technology is based on the alliance between the companies ADN Mobile Solutions and Envira Sostenible, which, with the union of their Cated® and NanoEnvi® technologies, have enabled environmental monitoring in cities with an unprecedented space-time resolution.

Currently, cities like Valencia, Madrid, Gijón and Oslo are using the UrVAMM system in their public transport companies.
