Clean air is a basic requirement of human health and well-being. However, in 2014, 92% of the population lived in places where theWorld Health Organization Guidelines on air quality were not respected. Different projects and studies at European, national and local levels raise strategies to fight against atmospheric pollution through the control and reduction of primary emissions from the source. In this work, the data collection and valorization will be done both by direct observation of the researcher, and also totally automated by immovable systems installed in the urban area. With these measurements, the air quality in an urban environment will be analyzed, together with urban mobility developed in this area, in order to characterize the interactions between both variables. Finally, this work presents a proposal, made to the local authorities, on decision-making concerning urban logistics, mainly in the city center.
