The Internet of Things (IoT) plays a crucial role in the environmental sensor industry. Sensors are increasingly connected to IoT platforms for real-time data collection and remote monitoring, allowing for more responsive environmental management. With a growing global focus on air quality and its impact on public health, environmental sensors designed for air quality monitoring have gained traction. These sensors measure various air pollutants, including Particulate Matter (PM2.5 and PM10), Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), and gases such as nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and sulfur dioxide (SO2). The data collected helps governments, organizations, and individuals make informed decisions about outdoor and indoor environments. Emerging trends include the integration of air quality sensors into smart cities and wearable devices for personal health monitoring.
Water quality sensors are essential for assessing the safety and cleanliness of water sources. They measure parameters such as pH, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, and the presence of contaminants including heavy metals and microorganisms. The deployment of water quality sensors for real-time monitoring in industries, such as water treatment, agriculture, aquaculture, and environmental conservation, is a growing trend. These sensors help ensure safe drinking water, maintain ecological balance in aquatic ecosystems, and support sustainable water resource management.
