AQP-IoT: Connected Sensing of Air Quality
The European Space Agency (ESA/ESRIN) has developed a low-cost customised platform (AQP: Air Quality Platform) to measure Air Quality parameters like CO2, PM2.5, PM10, etc. using a RasperryPi, an Arduino board and several different kinds of low-cost air quality sensors. Several units have been assembled and distributed around Europe, in schools, universities and other locations, allowing the deployment of a network of connected air quality sensors, in the spirit of IoT.
The exhibition will walk you through the AQP hardware and demonstrate the web/software capabilities of the AQP-IoT network.

ESRIN, the Italian establishment of ESA, has an important role in the Agency’s Earth Observation (EO) activities, developing and operating the Ground Segment of the Sentinel satellites of the Copernicus Programme, the largest EO Programme in the world. Since 2017, ESRIN is home to the Φ-Lab, aiming at accelerating the uptake of disruptive technologies in EO. The Φ-Lab is mainly dedicated to AI techniques and how they can be applied to EO, while other domains of interest are Internet of Things and Citizen Science.
