Nowadays, the impact of global warming is causing societies to become more aware and responsive to environmental problems. As a result, pollution sensing is gaining more relevance. In order to have a strict control over air quality, the use of mobile sensors is becoming a promising alternative to traditional air quality stations. Mobile sensors allow to(More)
In the next few years, important developments are expected in the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) area. One of the key issues enabling future solutions is achieving an effective integration between mobile apps and vehicles. Such integration can be efficiently achieved on all existing vehicles by relying on the On Board Diagnostic (OBD-II)(More)
Due to their deployment flexibility, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles have been found suitable for many application areas, one of them being air pollution monitoring. In fact, deploying a fleet of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and using them to take environmental samples is an approach that has the potential to become one of the key enabling technologies to(More)
Air pollution monitoring has become an essential requirement for cities worldwide. Currently, the most extended way to monitor air pollution is via fixed monitoring stations, which are expensive and hard to install. To solve this problem, we have developed EcoSensor, a solution to monitor air pollution through mobile sensors. It is deployed with(More)
Almost all the vehicles built during the last decade integrate an On Board Diagnostic (OBD-II) interface, through which it is possible to monitor and manage multiple operational parameters. In the past few years, Bluetooth OBD-II devices have been introduced in the market to facilitate connection to mobile devices. With the increased use of these devices,(More)
