This paper presents a project entitled Real Time Air Quality Reporting System, which can detect readings of the air pollution index (API) in the surrounding area of the device is connected with a cheaper cost compared detector system air pollution index (API) available in the market.
A project and a new strategy presented is to use a combination of the Arduino software along with the GSM system and hardware by using dust sensors to detect reading as a tool for reading the air pollution index (API). The Reading of air pollution index (API) in unhealthy condition is detected, the system will be sent unhealthy condition to smartphone using short messaging system (SMS). In this way information about the unhealthy condition of IPU will quickly known for ease of initial steps and security measures taken.
This chapter will discuss about the literature review from previous research related to this master’s project. Literature review is a process of collecting and analyzing data and information which are relevant to this study. The required data and information are collected through variable sources such a journal’s, articles, reference books, and online databases.
In this section, the progress of designing a real time air quality reporting system will be discussed in detail. Therefore, this chapter deals with the design and construction of the actual system as shown in Figure 3.2.
GP2Y1010AU0F as shown in Figure 3.3 is a dust sensor by optical sensing system. An infrared emitting diode (IRED) and a phototransistor are diagonally arranged into this device. It detects the reflected light of dust in air. Especially, it is effective to detect very fine particle like the cigarette smoke.
