Heat stress monitoring in smart cities applications
There is an increasing need to regenerate, redevelop and design urban contexts capable of proactively adapting to chronic and acute stress due to ongoing climate change, with the additional goal of population health protection. A proper choice of design measures and real-time information to citizens is possible through the measurement of a series of weather-climate quantities acquired before and after interventions and during the most acute phenomena. Real-time outdoor heat stress measurement for risk prevention, with microclimate indices calculation, is the solution for early warning and analysis of these increasingly frequent situations in the world's hottest countries.
