We propose to build an urban air quality monitor that provides realtime audio feedback. Our goal is to create a portable particulate matter monitor that can be worn inconspicuously during regular daily activities. We will utilize the form and function of a pair a headphones to express air-quality information through sound while also keeping the device inconspicuous.

Required Hardware:

  • Arduino Uno
  • Compact Optical Dust Sensor (GP2Y1010AU0F)
  • 150ohm resistor
  • 220uF capacitor
  • Piezo Buzzer (CET12A3.5)

Note: The sketch in Fritzing does not have the right component. I couldnt find the right resister and capacitor.
