Air pollution is a serious problem which is affecting the population worldwide. To measure the level of adversities, one should measure the concentration of pollutants available in the atmosphere. The conventional methods were expensive and were not user-friendly to visualize the measured data. The new technology gives the advantage of measuring data with the help of sensors and deploying that data on the cloud. The data can then be viewed from anywhere anytime. To measure the level of pollutant in the environment we used Arduino Uno as hardware with some sensors and visualized the measure data with the help of graphs.
