Internet of Things (IoT) of air quality

I am imagining using IoT to monitor and track air quality of homes and environment. And at the same use Machine learning  (ML ) and Artificial Intelligence  (AI) to monitor and track pollution sources in the environment.

How could digital technologies provide a solution to this challenge?

Combining air sensors, Geographical Information Service (GIS) with IoT technology to collect air quality data from homes and the environment. With power of ML and AI, tracking homes and environment with pollution danger can be detected and communicated to the specific community.

Hi, using internet of things is good. Yes I agree we need to trace track the source for pollution and monitoring and reporting is equally important. But most important thing is to implement policies after making policies by the government and policy makers. Even in India majority metropolitan cities have severe to very poor air quality. Thing is there are able to detect and know which are the major sources for causing this. In spite of Supreme Court decision during our festivals to not burn crackers for specific duration and time , it was not followed to the greater extent. We should see how we need to implement policies after knowing the source and tracking monitoring as well. This is not my expertise. But just wanted to share.

I agree. Policy implementation is very important for success of any plans, programmes etc. We can only our governments become proactive

Osu, can you please explain some of the acronyms you have posted such as IoT, ML. GIS etc. so that other users who may not be familiar with these acronyms can understand the context of your post. Thank you

This is related to a lot of work I am involved with within Ecosystem Services - absorbing air pollution etc is a valuable service. With my collaborators, I use semantics to spatially model these kind of things via machine learning. More information is available here: http://aries.integratedmodelling.org/

Do this require collecting air quality data from the environment? And is this testament

Does this require collecting air quality data from the environment? And is there plan to test it in rural economy

Theoretically, it is possible to have sensors live-updating to models in the ARIES system. Allowing for live monitoring and mapping of air pollution. Lots of work would be needed to get to that point. But it is possible.

Ok...look at my direction if such plannned for in the nearest future. I will be interested. I think NASA is also involved in something like this

Hi - air quality is certainly critical to monitor. Do you have any more detail on your project, I'm specifically very interested in knowing how you distribute and manage your collection devices?

Our approach to air quality monitoring is more of the traditional approach of using media in petri dishes. We are currently doing indoor air quality of offices in my institution to access impact on health

Osu have you seen this recent article entitled "IoT in Africa: Urgent Regulation Required" - http://www.circleid.com/posts/20181230_iot_in...ation_required/

Thanks for sharing. Many of the points raised are valid. With the current technology usage in the country, they are hackers prone. We will need a proactive government who can respond and give the backbone to protect our tech infrastructures.
