Real Time Ambient Air Quality Monitoring System Using Sensor Technology
Monitoring of air pollution using traditional methods is very expensive and time consuming work. The major
pollutants in ambient air are carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons and particulate matter. Sensor technology has
emerged as a cost effective, easy and fast method for monitoring ambient air quality. In this paper, a review of the studies
conducted using sensor technologies are presented and a sensor based monitoring system for real time monitoring of ambient
air quality and management is proposed.
