Abstract

The quality of air is a major concern nowadays; this is due to its crucial impact on human beings. Maintaining a good and healthy environment in a closed area depends heavily on the atmosphere. The primary difficulty lies in upholding air quality within an enclosed workplace setting. The conventional way to measure the quality of air was to collect the air quality samples by the fixed instruments in fields and measure the index in laboratories but with advances of Micro electromechanical Systems (MEMS) and Internet of Things (IOT) devices, the purity of air can be monitored in real time. This can be possible for the IOT enabled devices to collect the important data from the site (UG mine) and send the information to the base station to take preventive measures to improve the air quality or may design a way and set standards by which we can make prior arrangements for safe exit of personnel. In this study, we propose an IOT based real time air quality monitoring system to the level air is pure and acceptable.
