Air Pollution is a major global issues that has adverse effects. Air pollution needs to be minimised and therefore is the reason why I am designing this system. I am designing a system that can help warn people of the deadly effects of pollution and try to encourage them to reduce this issue. My system will consist of a sensor which will measure air quality and thus provide real-time data for people to physically witness.
I used C# for my coding within my light switch application. Here are some tutorial videos that helped me get started.
My system will consist of having sensors to measure air quality. Here is a list of sensors with its description of what sensors are and what they do.
World Health Organisation listed Air pollution as one of their most crucial global issue that needs to be resolved.
Visual Studio was the software I used to create my light switch application. Read more information on visual studio and download it here
This link leads you to what Cloud computing is and what advantages it offers. This information helped me to make the decision of designing an application that can then be loaded onto the cloud and allow users to access it through web-bases services.
IBM software Rational Rose
I used Rational Rose for designing my use case diagram
