Abstract

Internet of Things (IoT) is involving more and more fields where monitoring actions and fast and reliable data communication are simultaneously needed. Inside the general class of monitoring applications, those related to pollutant detection and classification are currently faced by many researchers and companies. Several approaches are being proposed in the literature, but lots of open issues and challenges are still to be handled before deploying a commonly considered optimum system. This contribution proposes a novel low-cost and highly flexible platform which is intended to tackle such challenges adopting ad-hoc hardware and software techniques. The proposed solution is applied to air and water contaminant detection case studies. The paper provides the reader with an innovative system in the field of pollution monitoring and focuses the attention on limitations, challenges and possible improvements needed to obtain reliable contaminant detection and, consequently, improve life quality.
