Recherche sur une initiative de métrologie citoyenne de la qualité de l’air : le projet CapCi à Rennes

Abstract : Citizen sensing initiatives have recently gained momentum as an effective way to address urban air pollution, which is a major public health concern. Supported by the Ademe (French Environment and Energy Management Agency), the Rennes City Council launched an initiative in 2016 called Ambassad'Air. Every year, volunteers are equipped with mini-particulate matter sensors to learn about urban air pollution, raise awareness around them, and adopt environmentally friendly behaviors. The CapCi research project, led by a multidisciplinary team, combines computer, social, and political sciences. Based on a literature review, the sensor data, and interviews with volunteers and local decisionmakers, the project aimed to study the volunteers' sensing and monitoring strategies, their social interactions, and the impacts of the initiative on both individual behaviors and local air quality policies. This article presents the CapCi project research design and strategy and examines its position in the current research on air quality citizen sensing.
