Arduino Water Pollution Monitor
Im torn between the two- Should I used Pi or Arduino for outdoor pollution monitoring?I have roughly a budget of $120 USD per node. Can I use both of them together?- If pi. What do you do about battery conservation?Pushing data to a webpage recomendations? Uploading data? What sensors should I use? Ive seen someone trying to sell a single CO2 sensor for $50 USD?!?CO2, NO, CO, NO2 sensor suggestions?Ive been looking at groveSome will be battery powered. others by the mains. im going to try 3D print a case for weatherproofing.
You're correct! My goal for this project was just to get young people involved in understanding things that impact the quality of community space. While conductivity doesn't directly measure "pollution" it does give an idea of the "purity" of the water which can be extended to a rudimentary idea of the quality of that water. The average ranges provided also serve to help put those numbers in context.
Sounds fantastic! I will certainly look into updating this with some links to those materials in the near future. Thanks for your feedback!
