Real time in-vehicle air quality monitoring using mobile sensing

Vehicle Indoor Air Quality (VIAQ) is a very important parameter that we often tend to ignore in our daily driving. VIAQ can worsen due to build-up of carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon monoxide (CO) and other harmful gases emitted by vehicles. Poor VIAQ can lead to short term health conditions like drowsiness, breathlessness, discomfort and headache. Drowsiness while driving is a predominant health condition that leads to large number of accidents and deaths all over the world. Standard equipment of air intake and recirculation in both low end and high end cars do not completely support pervasive maintenance of VIAQ. Due to unavailability of miniaturized sensors, a general purpose solution to this problem was rarely studied and addressed. In this work, we propose a novel mobile sensing system to monitor and understand change in VIAQ. Our mobile sensing system is general purpose, built by using an Android Smartphone and a mobile sensor, is independent of car age and model, and monitors VIAQ at all times. © 2016 IEEE.
