Luftdaten is a citizen science project to collect data of particular matter from homemade monitoring units. All the data is open and available to all to use and used to gain insights into the effect our on environment. They provide a parts list, step by step guide and all the code needed to build your very own sensor to contribute to
A full guide can be found on their website https://luftdaten.info/en/construction-manual/.
So got stuck in making one to get Ireland started on the map.
Once the sensor is loaded with the firmware and wires all connected time to use a simple waste water pipe as an enclosure.
Then place the unit on a wall in the open air.
Soon our sensor will be added to the live map os sensors -> http://stuttgart.maps.luftdaten.info/#7/53.335/-2.869
If you are interested in building one of these sensors drop us an email or comment and we can host a workshop.
