Projects:Air Quality Monitor
|Air Quality Monitor|
|Description||Air Quality Monitor,|
An Air Particulate Monitor based on the design from https://luftdaten.info/en/home-en/
It monitors PM2.5 and PM10 particulates along with humidity and temperature. Based of a infra red scatter and wavelength sensing to determine particulate size.
- Workshop - 23rd, June, 09.00 - Central Library, Aberdeen - Facebook Eventbrite
- Workshop to build 8 sensors to be fitted at participants house. Passed.
Successful workshop at central library.
- Talk - 27th June 18.30 - Central Library, Aberdeen - Facebook Eventbrite
- About the Project, how it was formed and the a wider discussion about air quality and further participation.
We have a number of sensors up in the Aberdeen area, you can see the geographical map of our current registered sensors in the link below.
The original Design -> https://luftdaten.info/en/construction-manual/
Our redesign, it is essentially the same device, but in a box instead of guttering pipe -> https://sarcoptic.net/AirMon-Config.pdf
Warning: this document is a work in progress and should be treated with caution
Flashing the devices
If the device needs re-flashed, the apple desktop in the hackerspace can flash the devices, by logging in as 'north57' and running the shell script in '~/Projects/FineDustSensor'
The data is sent with the long form ID of the sensor to medavi you can find the archived data at:
A subset of the data is then pulled to the luftdaten archive for display on the map but this is now indexed by the shorter ID there doesn't seem to be a way to know the relation without prior knowledge.
Ensure the device is not located near laundry vents these can affect the readings from the device, also not close to where generators are run. These sort of things can make analysis more complicated.
There has been some issues connecting the device to a BT Router, Ed can you get the model to crosscheck
