Technical Solution for a Real-Time Air Quality Monitoring System
AbstractThis article will present a simple technical solution for a low-power and real-time air quality monitoring system. The whole package of software and hardware technical solutions applied for recording, transmitting and analyzing data is briefly described. This original monitoring system integrates a single chip microcon-troller, several dedicated air pollution surveillance sensors (for PM10, PM2.5, SO2, NO2, CO, O3, VOC, CO2), a LoRaWAN communication module and an online platform. This system was tested and applied under real field conditions. Depending on the measured values, it provides alerts, or, it can lead to the re-placement of specific components in the exhaust equipment. This article will pre-sent some experimental results, validated also by official measurements of government operated air quality stations.
