Smart city Air monitor
Short Description: Using vehicles to monitor the air quality throughout the city in real time
Description: Smart City Air Monitor uses air quality sensor attaching to the vehicle to monitor the air quality through out the city. This idea originally came from Pigeon Air Patrol, where they use pigeon to monitor air quality in London. We believe that using our own cars would have much better results. A pubnub will be sending push notifications for those who enters the polluted areas. It would provide 3 major benefits
- For the drivers, they can now avoid heavily polluted areas and find alternative routes, it also allows them to monitor pollution during time of the day.
- The drivers now are also providing the air quality data to the city so that everyone else can plan their days around it.
- The city now knows where the most heavily polluted areas are, so that they can install air filters, trees, or simply signs to warn other citizens the general air quality around that area.
