Abstract

The paper proposes a mobile measurement system for urban pollution monitoring that can be installed on public ground transportation vehicles. It exhibits some important features that make it suitable for the purpose: low cost, reduced dimensions, autonomous power supply, and measurement strategy able to minimize the measurement uncertainty. To this aim, the measurement system implements data fusion techniques that operate spatial and time data integration. The general architecture of the proposed measurement system is at first described then, starting from laws and directive applied in the European countries, the general characteristics and requirements of the transducers to be adopted are discussed and retrieved. Finally the measurement and control unit together with its sensing, hardware and software parts are presented.
