"The first application of the technology is being launched on Sept. 30, placed inside a personal air pollution sensor called CleanSpace, which allows individuals to monitor the air quality around them. The sensor, called Tag, pairs with a mobile app to keep track both of carbon monoxide levels and transport choices made by an individual. Users earn points each time they walk, run or cycle. These can be traded for rewards from partners including Amazon, Boohoo.com and MaxiNutrition. The data from individual sensors is aggregated to build up a map of the air quality, in the same way Waze does for traffic."
