This paper gives a brief report on preliminary real-world measurements by low-cost gas sensorsystems for air quality monitoring in the framework of the Italian national project RES-NOVAE - Networks Buidings Streets: New Challenging Objectives for Environment and Energy. Measurements were performed by low-cost electrochemical gas sensors (CO, NO2, O3, SO2), optical particle counter/detector (PM1.0, PM2.5, PM10), NDIR infrared sensor (CO2), photo-ionisation detector (total VOCs), including miniaturized sensors for meteorological parameters (temperature, relative humidity). The sensors are running and installed in the city of Bari (Italy) to assess the performance during a campaign of several months of operation in the framework of sustainable innovation and citizen science in the smart cities. The first results indicate that these solutions are promising for air quality monitoring to address data quality objective of Indicative Measurements (Directive 2008/50/EC) [1].

Abstract

This paper gives a brief report on preliminary real-world measurements by low-cost gas sensorsystems for air quality monitoring in the framework of the Italian national project RES-NOVAE - Networks Buidings Streets: New Challenging Objectives for Environment and Energy. Measurements were performed by low-cost electrochemical gas sensors (CO, NO2, O3, SO2), optical particle counter/detector (PM1.0, PM2.5, PM10), NDIR infrared sensor (CO2), photo-ionisation detector (total VOCs), including miniaturized sensors for meteorological parameters (temperature, relative humidity). The sensors are running and installed in the city of Bari (Italy) to assess the performance during a campaign of several months of operation in the framework of sustainable innovation and citizen science in the smart cities. The first results indicate that these solutions are promising for air quality monitoring to address data quality objective of Indicative Measurements (Directive 2008/50/EC) [1].
