The project is based on the Internet of Things (IoT) for automatic air purification systems. The system displays air quality measurements to the connected display and operates automatically when the pollution exceeds healthy levels and shuts itself after the air quality reaches healthy levels. The project has a server-based database which can be established to monitor local and regional level data to conduct research studies and hence in effective measures. The system can be developed with artificial intelligence to work on its optimum on a given area with ever increasing effectiveness. The collected data can be analyzed to identify different types of particulate matter and the system can be adapted accordingly. The variation of PMs in regions of differing altitudes, climate, pressure can be studied via our data. By adding other modules like Gas detectors, harmful chemical gases can also be detected and can be used to alert people.

Project Team: Manoj Gurung, Kushal Bhandari, Shreedip Kaini, Navneet Singh and Ishan Panta.
