The plug and play solution was installed on the outdoor light poles to collect air samples. Pollutants such as PM2.5, PM10, CO2, CO, SO2, NO, NO2, O3, along with temperature and humidity were measured across the Town ship. The data was analyzed on the web Terminal, which was capable to generate data trends and reports. The heat maps and dispersion plumes can help in determining the source of origin of each pollutant. Identifying the sources can make the rectification process much easier by taking corrective actions in the particular region. The results were communicated through the Township’s official website/application to the citizens to aware them of the pollutants present in their township’s ambient air.
