Session:Air Quality Particulate Matter Sensor Workshop

From 36C3 Wiki
Description Measure local pollution levels by building your own particle matter sensor system. This DIY setup allowed everyone to measure air quality. Join thousands around the world by contributing the data to citizen science projects with open data. The system uses off the shelf parts (design by OK Lab Stuttgart as part of the https://luftdaten.info/  project).
Cost of the kit will be €50

This workshop will be given twice(both identical):
Max 10 places per session
Day 2: 28-Dec, 4pm - 5:30pm
Day 3: 29-Dec, 6pm - 7:30pm
(This is one of many cool things happening throughout 36C3 in the huge Hardware Hacking Area!)

Short Description

Measure local pollution levels by building your own particle matter sensor system. This DIY setup allowed everyone to measure air quality. Join thousands around the world by contributing the data to citizen science projects with open data. The system uses off the shelf parts with limited soldering required (design by OK Lab Stuttgart as part of the https://luftdaten.info/ project).

Cost of the kit will be €50

Full Description:

Sensor.jpg

Air pollution affects many peoples daily lives not just close to industrial centres. Most governmental monitoring is only done with a very limited number of sensors. Often times we are relying on modelling to make the best guess at current levels. This can miss out on local pollution sources or seasonally (coal fires during the winter) / event-based pollution. This kit uses customer grade hardware to measure levels of PM2.5. It is not a replacement for accurate calibrated professional equipment that can pinpoint the type of particles in the air but can give reasonable readings at a low lost in a local area.


I have not created this original kit, it is building on the work of the https://luftdaten.info/ project (OK Lab Stuttgart). The aim of the workshop is to provide an easy way for people to get the hardware and give a hand putting it all together.
