Collaborative air pollution monitoring
The aim of this project is to collect air quality information (fine dust particles) by means of a device that collects fine dust (PM1.0 and PM2.5) metrics. The device is mounted on bicycles to crowdsource factual air pollution information in and around the city of Ghent, Belgium and centralize that information for further processing.
During this presentation we will look at the hardware and firmware design. New ideas and future extensions. But we also touch on the problems related to particulate matter and air pollution.
The device uses an ESP8266 with various sensors and output devices. The firmware is written in C++ using the Arduino framework.
