  1. 1. EkoNET – Environment Monitoring Solution DunavNET www.dunavnet.eu
  2. 2. EkoNET - Problem Statement • Rising need to measure and monitor environment parameters such as temperature, humidity, air quality etc. Currently expensive stationary monitoring station are used • A real-time data is currently not available • People are detached from the air quality monitoring process, but acutely aware of impact air quality has on their health • Introduction of ICT technologies makes possible of fast introduction of cheaper sensor technologies and better utilization of data 2 Air quality monitoring is extremely important as air pollution has a direct impact on human health.
  3. 3. EkoNET - Overview The ekoNET service is designed to provide a complete end-to-end solution for the environmental monitoring following the design concepts used within the Internet of Things domain (IoT). The system comprises all necessary components namely devices, back-end infrastructure and client applications (web and mobile). It offers: • A real-time air pollution monitoring in urban and rural areas that utilize low cost sensors • Using wireless systems for transmission of measured data and vizualisation of data in a real-time 3
  4. 4. EkoNET - Overview The ekoNET devices contain the following components: – Measurement devices to monitor the environmental parameters (gas and atmospheric condition sensors) – GPS module (location) – GPRS – mobile network interface (data transfer) Together with the following modules ekoNET devices represent the whole environment monitoring system: – data server (data storage and processing) – web and mobile application (data visualization) 4
  5. 5. EkoNET - Overview • For the air quality estimation, electrochemical gas sensors are utilized which measure: CO, CO2, NO, NO2 and O3, as well as particle monitor PM2.5 and PM10 Particulate matter (PM) is an air pollution term for a mixture of solid particles and liquid droplets found in the air. The pollutant comes in a variety of sizes and can be composed of many types of materials and chemicals. Particles that are small enough to be inhaled have the potential to cause health effects. Of particular concern is a class of particles known as fine particulate matter or PM2.5 that gets deep into the lung. • Other environment parameters are measured using sensors, such as: noise, temperature, humidity and air pressure 5

  7. 7. EkoNET - DunavNET Solution 7 ekoNET system architecture• The ekoNET devices are connected to the ekoNET platform serving as the back-end cloud infrastructure. There are several variants of the ekoNET devices depending on the deployed location (indoor/outdoor), type of sensors used (air quality/safety) and usage (stationary/personal). • The collected data from the sensors is transmitted to the back-end infrastructure (Communication Server component) via the mobile network (CoAP) • The cloud platform the permanent storage of data (data storage within the Data Server component), data cleaning and processing functionality (Data Server and Data Processing components) as well as a set of visualization widgets (Visualization Engine component).

On Y axis are presented values obtained in AD units, i.e. in the values obtained from gas-sensors in Volts converted by A/D convertor in appropriate AD units (12 bits coder is used). In order to get the accurate results the sensors need to be calibrated. q Using gas chambers with known concentrations q Using data from stationary measurement stations q On the fly re-calibration
  9. 9. EkoNET - Results 9 The data can be visualized in a real- time using the appropriate web or mobile applications (see Figure).

  11. 11. EkoNET - Solutions The ekoNET service will be designed to be able to work in two modes: o as a standalone solution or o in combination with other smart city and enterprise platforms. The standalone solution will be suitable for small to medium municipalities and enterprises that do not already use other platforms. In the case of large cities and enterprises, in particular those in the oil and gas industry, who use large scale smart city and asset management platforms, the ekoNET service will be integrated in collaboration with the providers of these platforms,11
  12. 12. EkoNET - Customers q Small to medium municipalities and enterprises q Large cites q The oil and gas industry q Personal monitors (future models, possibly in collaboration with partners) 12
  13. 13. EkoNET - Markets The company strategy is firstly to address geographically close markets in Europe. o The EB700 has been deployed 4 years ago on buses in the city of Pancevo, Serbia o Two devices are deployed in Oslo (Norway) as a part of a small pilot. o It will be deployed in 40 elementary schools in the city of Belgrade (Serbia) as part of Citi-sense project (www.citi-sense.eu). o It is planned to deploy several devices in the open-pit coal mine o Monitoring device will be made for city of Novi Sad DunavNET is also looking to extend our sales to the USA, and the initial discussions were also being held regarding potential installation of devices in the Middle East. 13
  14. 14. Competitors/Collaborators • The AirBase (http://www.myairbase.com/) offers a similar model, with the following differences: – devices are more expensive; – the monthly fee is higher and does not include mobile application; – it is based on proprietary protocols. • Similar service is offered by the Envirologger (http://www.envirologger.com/). However, the prices are few-fold higher. • Libelium (http://www.libelium.com/) offers devices which are comparable in terms of the cost, but are using less accurate gas sensors. 14
  15. 15. Areas for Collaborations q Calibration services q Physical models of individual sensors q developing multi dimensional model for various combination of sensors q Collaboration with project partners (e.g. Alphasense) q Maintenance services q Collaboration with project partners at different markets and vice versa – we can offer support to15
  16. 16. EkoNET – Future Plans 16 EkoNET is at stage 2 of Product Lifecycle. In the first stage it went through number of iterations to come up with the product which is: q reliable q user friendly q uses mains power as well as solar panels to recharge batteries q can sustain difficult weather conditions The problem remains the same for all producers of new generation of air quality monitoring equipment and that is the accuracy and life time of cheap gas sensors, therefore in our product we strive to use the best available sensors combined with the latest in ICT to offer to the customer the best available product at a reasonable price.
