We're currently developing a LoRa network for outdoor air pollution monitoring. It is capable to detect dangerous volatile organic compounds, particulate matter, dioxide nitrogen.
It also collects temperature and humidity data.
Our goal is enhancing the accuracy of air pollution detection, by installing a significant amount of measuring endpoints.
Sensor endpoints are both battery and AC mains operated; we are planning to install a first test group of ten endpoints in Rome by July 2023;
data are trasmitted to a LoRa router (8 km away max) and then forwarded to our web server, by mean of the LoRa provider "The Things Network".
Data are freely available to the public, beyond-limits events are notified by Telegram and Amazon Alexa.
