ekoNET - Environmental Monitoring using Low-cost Sensors for Detecting Gases, Particulate Matter and Meteorological Parameters
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents the environmental monitoring solution ekoNET, developed for a real-time monitoring of air pollution and other atmospheric condition parameters such as temperature, air pressure and humidity. The system is based on low-cost gas, PM and meteorological sensors providing cost-efficient, simple to deploy, use and maintain solution targeted for the usage within the Internet of Things domain of smart cities and smart enterprises. The paper gives an overview of the system architecture, encompassing the ekoNET device, back-end cloud infrastructure, data handling and visualization engine as well as the application-level components and modules. Furthermore, initial field trial data of twelve ekoNET devices is presented, enabling the overall system operation performance testing.
