Outdoors and environmental
Traditionally, environmental monitoring in our urban areas has been performed by large, expensive air quality monitoring systems. These measure levels of pollutants including particulate matter, Nitrogen Oxide, Sulphur Dioxide and Carbon Monoxide.
While providing accurate data they are physically large and their costs limit the number that can be easily deployed. The introduction of relatively small wirelessly-enabled air condition monitoring units has enabled greater insights to be obtained through continuous sampling over larger geographic areas and at higher spatial resolutions.
However, it is not air quality monitoring a lone that is enabled by IoT, other measured values can include wind speed and direction, noise levels and light levels. Common uses for environmental monitoring are:
