Abstract: IoT(internet of things) are smart electronic devices connected through the internet. As time passes there are more IoT devices around us and the number can climb to an astronomical amount of 41.6 billion by 2025 as per reports [1]. The paper deals in modelling of an innovative IoT based system to cope up with urban air pollution. The system aims to act as an innovative ‘Quality Indicator and Preservation System for Air’(QIPSA). ‘QIPSA’ is a system with both hardware and software components. The hardware part consists of a large number of IoT electronic devices embedded near the roadside lamp posts to collect data in order to calculate local AQI. The software part involves in showing real-time pollutant & AQI data and involving in decision making to stabilise AQI. It can be used by regulating authorities to manage traffic efficiently such that the AQI(Air Quality Index) gets as low as possible. Civilians can use the system to decide their preferred route for daily works considering the AQI . The purpose of the system is to create a cost-effective hardware sensor network which provides real-time data and can be observed through a mobile application.
