The SMAG project (Air Monitoring System of Guarda) aims a monitoring of the air quality in Guarda city, with the action program namely "Study and Air Quality Certification".
The project is developed under the program "Rebuild, Revitalize and Assign Conceptual Density to the Serra da Estrela brand", integrating in the Collective Efficiency Strategy - PROVERE "Buy NATURE: SUSTAINABLE TOURISM IN CLASSIFIED AREA.
Smart irrigation system to green spaces
iRain system make the irrigation of green spaces. The system consists of a network of sensors and actuators, with a wireless communication network, and of the control software for the storage and availability of monitoring data in its portal in real time.
In order to reduce the price of the solution, the proposed system was developed in open source software.Thus, the iRain constitutes a valuable tool for promoting sustainable use of this scarce natural resource.
Smart nutrition system of plants
To grow a healthy plant, it must have not only good humidity an light levels but it needs good substrate nutrients where it is placed.
In the quest of giving the plants the best conditions of grow and production, the XPToN workgroup developed the quimi+.
This system allows monitoring the substrate and provides the right nutrients to it when it’s needed.
Sensing Indoor Air Quality for Health improving
Indoor environments are characterized by several pollutant sources.
iAQ is a low-cost indoor air quality monitoring wireless sensor network system.
Five micro sensors of
environmental parameters (air temperature, humidity, carbon monoxide, carbon
dioxide and luminosity) are used. Other sensors can be added for monitoring
The results reveal that the system can provide an effective
indoor air quality assessment to prevent exposure risk. In fact, the indoor air
quality may be extremely harmful for humans because the air indoor is diferent compared to outdoor.
