Abstract

The aim of this project is to develop a low cost air quality monitoring system. The proposed system used the Raspberry Pi board, Arduino board, Grove sensors and Microsoft's Azure based cloud service for data storage and analysis. The data was captured from the 10th of May to the 31st of August 2017 in Bonne Terre, Vacoas. It was found that during the data capture period there was one occurrence in May and two occurrences in August where the PM 2.5 and PM 10 were above the 25 ug/m3 and 50 ug/m3 level based on WHO guidelines.
