7.4.5 Wireless Chemical Sensor Networks for Air Quality Monitoring

Saverio De Vito & Grazia Fattoruso
Air quality assessment and monitoring could be efficiently performed by a distributed network of cost effective chemical sensors cooperating for the reconstruction of a chemical image of the sensed environment. The obtainable insights are of paramount importance in many applications ranging from city air pollution monitoring to energy efficiency in smart buildings. However several research studies have highlighted the challenging nature of developing such architecture. Actually, the intrinsic properties of the sensed phenomena, those of...
