According to a recent press release, “Carl Data Solutions Inc., is pleased to announce that Astra Smart Systems Inc. is launching its new AirSafe environmental sensor, with concurrent pilots in multiple industries. According to a recent study by Market Future Research, the environmental monitoring market is predicted to reach USD $19.56B by 2022. Astra AirSafe is a light weight, ultra low-cost device that measures temperature, humidity and many possibly dangerous substances, including methane, hydrogen and smoke, for advanced safety protection. Remote resort locations, mining, and forestry companies are piloting this possibly life-saving tool, with ATCO Wood Products Inc. and the Castlegar & District Chamber of Commerce kicking off the installations. ‘Astra has cultivated great industry partners throughout the Lower Columbia Kootenay region,’ said Pilar Portela, Astra CEO. ‘It is an honor to be able to work closely within our community to improve safety, while at the same time building a versatile product that will have an international impact’.”
The release continues, “The broad detecting scope, high sensitivity and a fast response time of AirSafe, combined with Carl Data’s technology agnostic platform’s built in alerting and alarming tools will allow for better real-time safety for assets and workers. This machine learning/AI enabled device will also be able to use data to give accurate future predictions about an environment, helping industries to be proactive with operations and risk management. ‘These pilots are just the beginning of what Astra and Carl Data are going to accomplish within the huge burgeoning environmental monitoring market,’ said Greg Johnston, Carl Data President and CEO. ‘Our clients will be amazed at the variety of products and applications we will be bringing to market in the new year’.”
