Following the research activity carried out during the “QATAR I” research project and the resulting experience, the need for substantial changes to the wireless sensor network has been introduced. A holistic approach to environmental monitoring and atmospheric pollution suggests enriching measuring nodes with other sensors in order to monitor a greater number of parameters.

Therefore, it is necessary to add, in addition to the sensors already present in the previously developed wireless sensor network, the parameters for SO2, O2, particulate matter, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) as well as classical environmental parameters such as temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure.

In addition, due to the need to make mobile devices and to be able to monitor by dynamically changing the node position, it is necessary to add a GPS module to trace the position with relative precision.
