Sensor Technologies for Air Quality Monitoring

Although air is all around us, we breathe it in every minute, and our lives depend on it, yet we pay very little attention to the quality of air, unless when facing a problem. Whether it is indoors or outdoors, poor air quality can affect our health and well-being significantly. Two levels of air pollution measurement are significant here. One is the presence of small PM2.5 or Particulate Matters measuring less than 2.5 microns in sizeā€”one micron being one-micrometer equal to one-millionth Read more [...]

Measuring Air Quality with IoT Sensor

Bosch Sensortec is making an IoT environmental sensor for measuring air quality. The BME680 can measure the indoor air quality, relative humidity, barometric pressure, and ambient air temperature. It has four sensors housed within a single LGA package measuring 3x3x0.95 mm, and both mobile and stationary IoT applications can use the package for use in smart homes, offices, buildings, elder care, sports, and fitness wearables.
The BME680 measures the indoor air quality through its internal gas sensor Read more [...]
