Build your own SODAQ Sniffer Bike!

9 Apr 2019

In a complex world of the Internet of Things, ideas are often thrown around without much execution. Sure, we can think of the idea to develop flying infrastructure maintenance drones. We can also think of the idea to track thousands of cows with a small solar-powered ear-tag. But why not start with something more simple that you can execute, right now?

This project was developed in 2018 and has been successful in the Dutch media, with features in popular newspapers like AD. The image below shows our demo in Barcelona with our CEO, Jan Willem Smeenk, demonstrating its use case in real time.


Jan Willem Smeenk van Sodaq testte deze week de snuffelfiets in Barcelona.


To display the impact IoT can have on your life, we developed the Bike Sniffer. The SODAQ Sniffer Bike is an open-source collaboration project with Civity and Provincie Utrecht in the Netherlands. The idea is to raise awareness of the public on the air quality in the environment they live in. We design this sensor to be attachable to any bikes so that it is effortless for anyone to use. The rising concern to air pollution also plays a major part on why we are in the interest of developing this project (World Economic Forum). We envision this project to perpetuate to a much greater scale such that the public can be more aware of what is happening in the environment.


With this tutorial, we aim to introduce you to SODAQ - what we stand for, the quality of our builds and our core values of sustainable development (both nature and quality wise). We want to show that we know what we are doing in this industry, big or small, and we always want to share our expertise.
