Vehicle emissions are a major source of urban air pollution, and therefore a real-time monitoring system can be very useful in analyzing such emission and consequently assisting the policy making process. In this work we discuss the principle and structure of three different types of remote sensing detectors, and also the key techniques to establish a networked remote sensing monitoring system. We finally conclude this paper with data analysis from some preliminary experiments.
