The overall objective raised by the project “Smart Lantern with nanosensors for Control of Air Quality” is to develop a platform of nanosensors to monitor the ozone concentration in urban, suburban environments and industrial zones. The aims of this project are:
- Develop and implement an array of nanosensors 2nd generation that increase the sensitivity through the mesoporosity of the oxide semiconductor used as sensitive material.
- Improve the capacity of screening of ozone in a multicomponent mixture with respect to commercially available thanks to the inclusion of nanoparticles designed ad hoc.
- The set of nanosensors will be housed in the head intelligent lamps powered by solar panels, which also imposes certain restrictions on electronic and mechanical development.
- The set of signals generated in the different platforms will be processed and managed by the lamp / control center. Finally, citizens have access to information on the quality of the air you breathe in real-time using a software specifically developed for this purpose.
