A Mobile GPRS-Sensors Array for
Air Pollution Monitoring

Abstract--An online GPRS-Sensors Array for air pollution
monitoring has been designed, implemented, and tested. The
proposed system consists of a Mobile Data-Acquisition Unit
(Mobile-DAQ) and a fixed Internet-Enabled Pollution Monitoring
Server (Pollution-Server). The Mobile-DAQ unit integrates a
single-chip microcontroller, air pollution sensors array, a General
Packet Radio Service Modem (GPRS-Modem), and a Global Posi-
tioning System Module (GPS-Module). The Pollution-Server is a
high-end personal computer application server with Internet con-
nectivity. The Mobile-DAQ unit gathers air pollutants levels (CO,
NO2, and SO2), and packs them in a frame with the GPS physical
location, time, and date. The frame is subsequently uploaded to
the GPRS-Modem and transmitted to the Pollution-Server via the
public mobile network. A database server is attached to the Pol-
lution-Server for storing the pollutants level for further usage by
various clients such as environment protection agencies, vehicles
