Internet of Things for Smart Cities
The main of this project is to monitor the Air Quality, Temperature, Humidity and Sound Level. Internet of Things ( IOT) is emerging technology for remote monitoring of the surrounding parameters with the use of sensors, it senses the data in real time and transfer them into the desired form and help to forward the sensed data across the network cloud via ‘Internet connection’. The project uses the IOT ‘ThingSpeak’ web service which is an open API service that act as a host for a variety of sensors to monitor the sensed data at cloud level. The updated data can be accessible through the internet from anywhere. This project also uses an Arduino UNO board, ESP8266 Wi-Fi module that helps to process and transfer the sensed data to the ThingSpeak Cloud.
