The project aims at investigating the ambient air quality in Mauritius. The proposed system will use Internet of Things (IoT) devices equipped with gas sensors to capture the level of pollutant in the air at various locations around the island. The monitoring devices consist of low cost devices such as Raspberry Pi 3 and Arduino boards. The main pollutants being monitored are Ozone (O3), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) and Particulate Matter (PM2.5 and PM10). Additional environmental factors such as temperature, atmospheric pressure and relative humidity are also measured. The sensor data along with information such as the identifier of the monitoring system, time-stamp for the data captured, GPS coordinates of the sensing location are captured at regular interval during the data and sent to the Microsoft Azure platform.
