IMMISmt is a real time monitoring system for air pollution and noise. Based on online traffic data, measurements of air quality stations, emission data and weather data, IMMISmt continuously calculates traffic induced emissions, background and total pollutant concentrations as well as noise levels within the streets as, e. g., hourly mean values. To do so, IMMISmt combines various models which are validated and widely used in air quality planning.
IMMISmt was developped in the context of two research projects (HEAVEN, Berlin und MOBINET, Munich) and was implemented in the project iQ mobility as a component of an Integrated Quality and Mobility Management for Road Traffic in the Berlin Region.
In spite of many efforts in recent years to improve the air quality in Berlin, especially residents in street canyons with a high traffic density are still exposed to poor air quality and meeting the limit values of European air quality guidelines remains a challenge.
IVU Umwelt has identified the hot spots in Berlin by a combination of measurements and modelling. The results became part of the Clean Air and Action Plan for Berlin 2005 - 2010 which contains the Environmental Zone as a measure to improve air quality.

Available since August 2009:
The series of guidelines VDI 4280 describes the planning and evaluation of ambient air quality measurements and is an important element of quality assurance in monitoring and assessing air quality in the sector regulated by law.
The guidelines were developed and published by the "Commission on Air Pollution Prevention of VDI and DIN - Standards Committee". VDI, the Association of German Engineers, is a financially independent and politically unaffiliated, non-profit organization of 132,000 engineers and natural scientists. More than 13,000 of these members work for the VDI in an honorary capacity.
