Abstract—Air pollution has become a problem across the globe and is still arising as a major concern in a country with booming economy. In the Philippines, laws were outlined to reduce air pollution and incorporate environmental protection into its development plans. However, limited means to conduct air quality monitoring that could determine if the standards in the National Ambient Air Quality Guidelines are met have been implemented. This study aims to design and create a system that could monitor the surface air quality from the different distant zones of a local municipality. The primary focus is to develop a cost-effective and portable air quality monitoring system that can hook up online and equipped with sensory system of major pollutants namely Carbon Monoxide, Nitrogen Dioxide, and Sulfur Dioxide. This study also aims to engage in implementation of an integrated technology that will infuse WiFi development board modules built on ESP8266 based modules, Arduino microcontroller and elements of Internet of Things to form an intelligent and connected environment. The system also aims to provide a view for the citizens for them to be aware of the air that they breathe, an air quality index calculator and repository of collected air quality data that could help other researchers and experts in implementing ways to control pollution problems.


Index Terms—Air quality monitoring, internet of things, zone-based sensory, ESP82266, WiFi module.
