Description

Sensor for (heavy) particles (pollution) in the air.

We could use this information for an application which would plan a path to a destination in the city in a way that you would breath least polluted air while you would drive a bicycle. For example. Or at least to counter (or independently prove) official statements of how much the air is polluted in the city.

If i get it right, the aim is to build a networkable simple sensors for heavy particles in air?

comment:2 Changed 8 years ago by mitar

The idea is just an addition to other ideas for sensors: temperature, pressure, sound (pollution), heavy particles...

I have been searching for air quality sensors and this is the best one I found:
http://www.seeedstudio.com/wiki/Grove_-_Air_quality_sensor

I would like to make this air quality sensor work with Nodewatcher, I'll work on hardware part.

Is it possible to get few of this sensors so that we can integrate them into Nodewatcher?

Datasheet for TP-401A Indoor air quality gas sensor:

Suggestion of other air quality sensors:

  • Dylos DC1100Pro Laser Particle Counter
  • DHT22 Temperature and Humidity Sensor
  • MQ-135 Volatile Organic Compound Gas Sensor
  • TP-401A Volatile Organic Compound Gas Sensor
  • Senseair K22/K30 NDIR CO2 Sensor
  • PM10 sensor: Sharp GP2Y1010AU0F with <PM10 filters from Whatman

http://www.panstamp.com/announcements/respirasensor sensor seems to be the best choice, since we are planning full support with panStamp and SWAP protocol, see 1067

Let's take a look inside Air Quality Egg and see which sensors it uses...

Also there is more info on sensors here.
