New Delhi, August 14
Scientists at Gayatri Vidya Parishad-Scientific and Industrial Research Centre in Visakhapatnam have developed an indigenous system for real-time distant monitoring of air high quality parameters, the Department of Science and Technology (DST) stated on Friday.
The Air Unique-quality Monitoring (AUM) system is an modern utility of the ideas of laser backscattering, statistical mechanics, optoelectronics, synthetic intelligence, machine/deep studying, and the Internet of Things, a press release stated.
It can determine, classify and quantify varied pollution concurrently (of orders of lower than one half per billion) and meteorological parameters, with very excessive precision, sensitivity and accuracy, it stated.
Professor Rao Tatavarti, the director of Gayatri Vidya Parishad-Scientific and Industrial Research Centre (GVP-SIRC) and GVP College of Engineering in Visakhapatnam has developed the system with the help from DST’s Clean Air Research Initiative.
Professor P Arulmozhivarman from the School of Electrical Engineering, VIT University in Vellore and some others had been a part of Tatavarti’s workforce.
The AUM system was efficiently evaluated throughout laboratory trials. It was additionally in contrast within the subject with imported methods from France and Australia, and operated by the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board underneath the aegis of the Central Pollution Control Board of India, the assertion stated.
The system has the CATS Eco-Systems, Nashik, because the expertise switch accomplice for commercialisation.
“It has been found to be highly sensitive and accurate and capable of simultaneous detection and quantification of all air quality parameters and offers a number of merits over any of the currently available conventional systems,” the assertion stated.
It is transportable, compact, low powered and economical, works on plug and play methods, requires no organising time, and no extra civil infrastructure for housing.
The system additionally gives data on all gases and meteorological parameters concurrently.
“It is a non-intrusive remote, real-time monitoring system with very high sensitivities and accuracies and is capable of monitoring in both spatial and temporal domains, with very high sampling frequencies,” the assertion stated.
“Also, the data from spatially separated sensors can be seamlessly streamed to a cloud server, from where digestible real-time encrypted information on the dashboard is made available to users at any part of the world,” it added. PTI
