- Air pollution is a major environmental risk to health causing premature deaths worldwide. In these conditions the development of reliable and accurate mobile systems that measure the indoor air quality together with other parameters associated with health status of the people working or living in specified spaces represents an important challenge. The paper presents the design and implementation of a mobile air quality and respiration activity monitoring system including multi-channel Bluetooth compatible smart sensors that deliver the information to a smart phone running an Android operating system (OS). An embedded software developed in Java for the smart phone platform assures the air quality and respiration data processing, graphical user interface, including alarm generation, and data synchronization with a remote database through Wi-.Fi or 3G/UMTS service. Experimental results associated with air quality and subject’s respiration sensing as so as the smart phone software implementation are included in the paper.
