3. IoT for Environmental Conservation

Ways to Implement IoT in Environmental Conservation

IoT-based sensors for environmental conservation

  • Learn in-depth about these sensors:
    • What do they measure?
    • How is IoT integration involved?
  • Think About: Cross-Functional utility of these sensors

Here are some examples of sensors that can be integrated with IoT-based systems for effective environmental monitoring and management:

SensorWhat they measureHow IoT integration benefits
Air quality. Concentrations of pollutants in the air, such as particulate matter (PM), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), and ozone (O3). Real-time monitoring of air quality
. Identification of pollution hotspots
