Automated Control System for Air Pollution Detection in Vehicles
One of the major concerns regarding the environment is air pollution. Vehicles are a major source of pollution in urban areas. The drastic increase in number of vehicles has also resulted in a significant increase in the emission load of various pollutants. Air pollution contributes to the green houses gases, which causes the green house effect, whose side effects are now well known to all of us after the findings about the hole in the ozone layer. Air pollution is not only harmful to the environment but, also to all other living beings on earth. Vehicles are one of the major contributors to air pollution apart from industries. The main pollutants from vehicles are the oxides of carbon and nitrogen, which can be easily detected these days with the help of semi conductor gas sensors. Therefore, in this paper an idea is suggested, which would be very helpful in reducing the amount of pollution from vehicles.
