Air is one of the major important concerns for human life. The survival of human life is completely depending on the air. So, the air is defined as “Lets Live the human life”. The oxygen is much required for life. Fresh air contains more oxygen. More oxygen helps for the better functionality of the body. Nowadays, air is getting polluted due to heavy usage of chemicals, the use of petroleum products and the release of CO2. So, day by day, the purity of the air is maximum decreasing. Hence, it becomes necessary to monitor air pollution in various segments. The importance of air quality has been recognized in the early 1980s. Different techniques are used to measure air quality. Hence, we propose a new technique of Data science for analyzing the air quality and we have implemented IoT techniques to monitor the air quality.
