The Vehicle Tracker and Pollution Monitoring System (VTPM) is an environmental pollution measuring system integrated with vehicle tracking system, which enables the necessary functions of vehicle tracking (AIS-140 compliant) along with integrated pollution measuring module that measures in real-world.
Conventional pollution monitoring systems are usually expensive and cumbersome to use, and they measure pollution at secondary points such as off the road, one the sidewalk, below bridges, etc. where the pollutants are quite diluted, averaged and may not represent the real values.
The VTPM measures these parameters in the actual area of origin of some of such pollutants, which is on the road, which means the data is precise and real-time.
In addition to true measurement at the right location, the data is sent to a server and using advanced data science, would enable a city-wide pollution information database with trend estimation, transport and city planning, weather forecast, etc. The device also has functions to handle conditions such as sensor drift, calibration, firmware update, etc.
