Air Quality Monitoring Station (In Progress)

Description

This project proposes using funds for setting up one monitoring station for Air Quality for streaming live data through an open access web dashboard accessbile to all campus community members.  
        The monitoring system would offer a robust and easy to-use air quality monitoring system that can deliver localised real-time readings, improving the accuracy and scope of gathering air quality data to support initiatives to reduce air pollution and its risk to human health. For this project a portable sensor station which includes multiple small-sensor air quality monitors for  air quality is proposed. This measuring standard offers near real-time localized air quality information and data analysis.  
      The project aims to measure key pollutants in ambient air using the small sensor technology combined with data processing derived from extensive global comparisons with reference data.  Some of the parameters to be measured and reported include-

•    Gases including NO, NO2, NOx, O3, CO, SO2, CO2 and H2S using the latest generation of electrochemical sensors
•    Particulates PM1, PM2.5, PM10 and TPC with a light-scattering optical particle counter
•    Relative humidity, pod temperature, atmospheric pressure and noise
