Abstract:
    A portable and compact IOT device that monitors and measures atmospheric pollution in real time, and sends this data to cloud where it is used to create pollutants heat maps w.r.t location.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Given the low awareness level among people along with limited capability of the environmental agencies, situation of air pollution is grave yet non properly understood. Current methods of monitoring air pollutants are slow, bulky and expensive.Plus common people don't have access to the latest data.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Benefactors of AmbiCEM: -Manufacturers and distributors of air quality monitoring products -Research laboratories and academic institutes -Governmental (EPA) and non-governmental environmental monitoring agencies -Petrochemical products industries -Metals and mining companies -Municipalities
How will the solution works
    Our device has a handful of sensors integrated to perform real-time measurement of concentration of major pollutants in ambient atmosphere: CO2, CO, SOX, NOX, VOCs, ground level ozone, Particulate Matter (PM 2.5, PM 10). Along with some weather parameters such as humidity, temperature, atmospheric pressure, wind speed. This signal collected from sensors are processed in a microcontroller and uploaded to the cloud through 3G shield where heart maps are made on Google Maps API to give a visual.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    There are no competitors for such device in Pakistan. All the agencies currently monitoring air pollution are either governmental organizations or non-profit NGOs.
