Hawa Dawa’s AI-based Air Quality Monitoring Solution Successfully Competes with Traditional Methods


Revolutionizing Environmental Monitoring through Cutting-Edge Technology and Innovative Approaches


Munich, February 2023: OpenAI’s ChatGPT has made artificial intelligence more accessible to the public, enabling people to witness the capabilities of AI in their daily lives. Recognizing the potential of AI in environmental monitoring, Hawa Dawa has integrated AI into the core of its air monitoring method from the very beginning. The Hawa Dawa solution leverages the advantages of AI, including increased efficiency, improved accuracy, and better decision-making, to provide a comprehensive and accurate picture of the environment.

Hawa Dawa’s innovative approach to environmental monitoring has resulted in significant cost savings, full scalability, and continuous improvements to the product. TÜV Süd and multiple direct comparisons with alternative solutions confirmed the reliability and accuracy of Hawa Dawa’s method.

Hawa Dawa’s Sentience System recently faced a critical challenge when it won a tender in one of Europe’s largest capitals. The solution was benchmarked against competitive hardware products from two traditional hardware manufacturers, comparing Hawa Dawa’s AI-based solution with air quality monitoring relying on pure hardware. Despite the constraints of the evaluation, which did not allow further training of the AI after deployment and the loss of the training station in Munich, Hawa Dawa’s solution outperformed the competitors in two of three accuracy-related categories.

The conclusion of the evaluation is clear: AI-based air quality monitoring can replace traditional, costly, and bulky hardware-centric measurement methods without compromising accuracy. The robust AI developed by Hawa Dawa delivered acceptable results even under unfavourable conditions and has the potential to provide even higher accuracy levels with full leverage of the AI-based models and continuous improvements through machine learning. The results of this comparison are available upon request.

“At Hawa Dawa, we believe in the power of AI to revolutionize the way we monitor air quality,” says Karim Tarraf, CEO and Co-Founder of Hawa Dawa. “Our recent evaluation against two traditional hardware manufacturers, even under challenging conditions where we were unable to further train our AI algorithms or calibrate our devices, confirms that our AI-based solution can deliver robust and accurate results that rival traditional methods.”

Hawa Dawa is proud to revolutionize the field of environmental monitoring through its cutting-edge technology and innovative approaches. To learn more about Hawa Dawa’s solution, please contact  sales@hawadawa.com.

About Hawa Dawa:

Hawa Dawa forms the basis for a new digital knowledge network for resilient and climate-neutral cities and future-oriented companies. The focus is on facilitating the use of meaningful environmental data in decision making. Hawa Dawa compiles air quality data from all available sources, from satellites to ground-based public monitoring stations to IoT sensors, and correlates it with use case-specific data, such as traffic. These insights are made available on intuitive dashboards, annotated APIs and deep-dive analytics reports. The data covers the full range from historical to real-time to predictive and simulation.

Hawa Dawa leverages state-of-the-art sensor technology, IoT, AI, machine learning, and cloud services to provide A-class air quality data at high spatial and temporal resolution.

Phoenix Motorcars Delivers ZEV Trucks 
to City of Salinas




Anaheim, California (February 3, 2023) – Phoenix Motorcars is proud to announce their recent deployment of 3, All-Electric, Zero-Emission Z500 trucks to the City of Salinas. The project included 1 x Zero Emission flatbed truck, and 2 x Zero Emission cargo trucks, as well as 3 x Level III charging stations.


The three trucks are built on the Ford E-450 chassis powered by Phoenix Motorcars and will serve the City of Salinas in their fleet department. The all-electric zero emission trucks were funded in part by the Monterey Bay Air Resources District (MBARD) Clean Air Management Program and the Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) program.


According to Richard Stedman, MBARD’s Air Pollution Control Officer, “Over 60% of the total emission of smog forming compounds in our region comes from motor vehicles with the largest portion coming from medium to heavy duty diesel trucks and buses. By partnering with the City of Salinas to purchase three medium duty electric trucks, we’re taking another step toward improving air quality in our community.”


The Phoenix Z500 trucks are equipped with a 94-kWh battery pack offering up to 110-mile range and can be fully charged in approximately two to three hours with a 50-kW Level III charger. The Z500 trucks, as compared to its equivalent fossil fueled alternatives, will reduce atmospheric emissions by ~61 tons per vehicle annually, reduce maintenance costs by 75% and fuel costs by 80%.


“Agriculture is the foundation of our local economy, so the air quality and climate in our community matter,” said Salinas Mayor Kimbley Craig. “Replacing three large fleet vehicles helps protect our environment and also significantly reduces operational and maintenance costs. Climate resiliency and environmental sustainability are part of the core values of our Council and improve the quality of life for our residents.”


Phoenix has been the leader in medium duty electrification for over a decade. With 4 million all-electric miles driven on their zero emission drive systems, Phoenix has unparalleled experience and expertise helping public and private fleets successfully deploy and adopt electric vehicles into their fleets, cleaning the air quality and providing clean, quiet and safe zero emission transportation and mobility for their companies and communities.


“Phoenix Motorcars is proud of our commitment to sustainable vehicle technology, and our project to bring the first zero emission trucks to the City of Salinas” says Thomas Allen, Vice President of Sales for Phoenix Motorcars. “We’ve been an avid supporter of both the state HVIP program and MBARD’s efforts to help clean the air quality in Monterey County, and this project is a huge success for both the City of Salinas’ fleet, and their community members who breathe the air of the beautiful central coast. Zero emission transportation and mobility is an integral part of building a sustainable future and it’s great to see the City of Salinas being an early adopter. Operating the Z500 all-electric trucks from Phoenix will provide significant emission savings and cost saving opportunities to Salinas and their community.”

The longest range and fastest charging EV shuttle on the market, Endera’s built-in-the-USA buses are now available (as the lowest bid price) to 300+ California transit fleets.


LOS ANGELES, CA [February 7th, 2023] Basin Transit Authority (MBTA) has authorized, on behalf of the California Association for Coordinated Transportation (CALACT), Endera for their B-Series all-electric buses in the largest statewide purchasing contract in US history. Endera was awarded the contract for up to 1,000 electric shuttles through its distribution partner, Coachwest Luxury & Performance Motorcars (Coachwest).


CALACT association’s membership of transit agencies, as well as city and county governments, can now purchase Endera’s B-Series all-electric shuttles through a streamlined process which complies with federal and state purchasing regulations.


CALACT is the largest state transit association in the United States and helps fleet operators avoid lengthy and expensive individual procurement efforts. With over 300 members, CALACT works to promote professional excellence, stimulate ideas for effective community transit, and advocate for improved public transportation in all parts of California.

Endera’s All-Electric B-Series Shuttle


An estimated 1,000 electric shuttles are expected to be purchased from the CALACT contract by 2025, with additional electric buses procured over the entire 5-year contract period, making it the most of any state purchasing contracts for electric buses in the United States.


As the industry’s only vertically integrated mid-sized EV bus maker in the United States, Endera’s electric powertrains and vehicle bodies are built under one roof at the company’s 250,000 sq ft manufacturing facility in Ottawa, Ohio.


Endera’s electric shuttles and associated service partnerships support California’s clean air and climate goals. Endera’s proprietary electric powertrains are developed at the company’s Research and Development (R&D) headquartered in Los Angeles, California. With a focus on quality and service, Endera offers state-wide service capability throughout California with its R&D facility and service partners.


“Endera was awarded the CALACT contract as the lowest priced vendor and the only vertically integrated one-stop-shop. We listen to our clients to learn about the problems they face and understand the solutions they need, which is why we have a superior offering in virtually every category,” said John Walsh, Founder & CEO of Endera.


“All of our models have a fast-charging option, increasing up-time for operators, while also providing significant range capability. We have developed a fully integrated software ecosystem that makes it easier and less expensive to adopt electric buses, so fleet operators can focus on running their business.” Walsh continued.


“Whether a fleet is large or small, finding reliable, affordable electric shuttles can be a tough proposition. Endera is honored to be one of the select few to successfully complete the rigorous CALACT vetting process, allowing us to offer our best-in-class electric buses to transit fleet operators throughout the state,” said Don White, Sales Manager at Endera.


Jay Real, Manager, Sales at Coachwest added, “Coachwest is pleased to offer Endera products under the CALACT contract. These cutting-edge vehicles are also eligible for Hybrid and Zero Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) point-of-sale vouchers.”


Endera’s electric buses feature smart technology, including proprietary dispatch software that tracks vehicles and routes, automates records and energy management, and streamlines reporting and vehicle service. The platform also integrates with Endera GO, a consumer app designed to improve riders’ experience.


The B-Series offers a 12-passenger + 2 and a 16-passenger + 2 wheelchair seating option, with additional floorplans available to meet each agency’s requirements. The series has a lightweight body design to maximize range efficiency and can charge in as little as 45 minutes, making it the fastest charging electric bus of its class on the market in the U.S.

Tattile: Highway traffic management in Republic of Srpska 

November 15, 2022




Tattile: Highway traffic management in Republic of Srpska 



Six lane controlled-access highway in Poland.


In order to better utilize the capacity of the traffic network, improve the overall performance of the traffic system in all conditions, as well as to raise the level of traffic safety, advanced traffic management systems or Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS) are utilized to monitor, control and manage the traffic flow. The ITS system on the highway Banja Luka – Doboj covers the section from the Tovira interchange (Johovac) to the Kostajnica (Rudanka) interchange. It includes, within a single platform, integrated systems for traffic monitoring, management of variable traffic signals, speed control and traffic lanes usage definition, road weather condition measurement and informing traffic participants about them, video surveillance, detection of traffic parameters and a system for oversized vehicle detection. The ITS system is modular and adaptable in terms of functionality and size, enabling it to expand and adapt to future infrastructure requirements.

The integrated automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology is part of the ITS system, which automatically takes pictures of each passing vehicle’s front, angle, or rear. Its processing software automatically detects and reads the vehicle license plates and takes action depending on the recognition results, e.g., transfer of results to the central system for further processing. The cameras used are intelligent Tattile Smart 2HD, a model specifically designed for outdoor installation and reliable performance day and night in all weather conditions. The Tattile Smart 2HD cameras enable vehicle data collection at a maximum vehicle speed of 250 km/h. Cameras are installed on portals and pillars and work 24 hours / 7 days a week. In the next step, the highway operator Autoputevi Republike Srpske plans to further exploit the abilities of the Tattile Smart Cameras by activating system functionalities such as recognition of vehicle brand and color as well as vehicle class. Also, average speed measurement or section speed control is currently planned to be installed using the Tattile camera technology. Such additional information may be particularly useful to a third party, such as, e.g., traffic police, in performing their duties. In addition to further expanding the data generation on the current highway section, the highway operator intends to expand the entire system to more highway sections in the Republic of Srpska.
