Abstract: In this paper we have used a new Digitalized approach to measure and control the pollution in the under developing country. We have use temperature sensor to sense temperature, Humidity sensor to sense humidity, Smoke sensor to collect data from the different gases (e.g. Carbon Di Oxide O2, Methane, Sulfur Dioxide etc.) and many more other sensors is used to collect data from dust and from atmosphere. Sensors are controlled by Microcontroller (MCU). Collected data is sent to the central server through access point. Data is stored being displayed on LCD/LED. Analysis of collected data is done to analyze the rise in the pollution, temperature and various parameters that causes the pollution. If it seems to be above danger level then alert signal is sent in the entire city and display the precaution that need to be furnished by the citizen. This will help to predict the weather and increase in pollution. Once the major cause of pollution is known then proper action can be taken to control the pollution. Every citizen will know about the pollution in their respective city so that they will be aware to it. This system will help to know about traffic on the different route in the city. If some the accident happens on the road, then this information will be distributed in the entire city and about the traffic on that route. It will help to find out the vehicles which releases more carbon dioxide (e.g. old Car, Bike, Bus etc.) after this type vehicle will be removed by the government authority which may leads to reduce in the pollution.
