Arduino Air Quality Meter
Recent campaigns around environment pollution helped increase the awareness around it with more people beginning to monitor their pollution footprint while also paying attention to the quality of air they breathe in. Different countries and communities have now several Air quality monitoring solutions deployed in strategic locations but there are times where you as an individual will have the desire for your own personal air quality monitoring solution to monitor the quality of air in your immediate vicinity. For today’s tutorial, we will look at how you can build a DIY personal air quality monitoring solution to monitor the quality of air around you.
While there are several attempts at Air quality monitoring on the internet, today’s project will chronicle Zachary Lee‘s project because it provides a portable, battery powered, intuitive solution. The project makes use of an air quality sensor from TinyCircuits called the VOC whisker along with a TinyScreen+ which is used to display the air quality index as a bar, and a LiPo battery to power the entire system.
