CAVISAP : Context-Aware Visualization of Air Pollution with IoT Platforms

University essay from Luleå tekniska universitet/Institutionen för system- och rymdteknik

Abstract: Air pollution is a severe issue in many big cities due to population growth and the rapid development of the economy and industry. This leads to the proliferating need to monitor urban air quality to avoid personal exposure and to make savvy decisions on managing the environment. In the last decades, the Internet of Things (IoT) is increasingly being applied to environmental challenges, including air quality monitoring and visualization. In this thesis, we present CAVisAP, a context-aware system for outdoor air pollution visualization with IoT platforms. The system aims to provide context-aware visualization of three air pollutants such as nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ozone (O3) and particulate matter (PM2.5) in Melbourne, Australia and Skellefteå, Sweden. In addition to the primary context as location and time, CAVisAP takes into account users’ pollutant sensitivity levels and colour vision impairments to provide personalized pollution maps and pollution-based route planning. Experiments are conducted to validate the system and results are discussed.
