Monitoring water and air makes our world safer. 

Poor air and water quality will damage you and your family’s health.

What can we do about this?

How do you effectively measure air and water quality?

In this story, you’ll see how students at the University of Minnesota use to monitor water and air.

The photos in this article show you that these Industrial IoT sensor systems are installed on public transit buses in Minnesota.

The vehicles are automatically gathering sensor data as they move and carry citizens around urban environments.

Each of these monitoring stations is measuring water and air quality sensors to record factors like:

  • Particulate Matter (PM1, PM2.5, and PM10)
  • Nitric Oxide (NO)
  • Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)
  • Carbon Monoxide (CO)
  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2) monitors sensors made by any hardware manufacturer. Whether you’re monitoring water, air, or anything else, we’re here to help you, your teams, and your organization to save your time and your money.

For these mobile monitoring systems, Industrial IoT sensor hardware from a variety of companies is used, like sensors from Yoctopuce and Alphasense.

Here at Valarm we’re delighted to see student projects like this make use of the Valarm Tools Cloud platform to help improve our environment, as well as the quality of life for everyone. A big thanks goes out to Andrés González for sharing the photos and information.
