In recent years, interest in monitoring air quality has been growing. Traditional environmental monitoring stations are very expensive, both to acquire and to maintain, therefore their deployment is generally very sparse. This is a problem when trying to generate air quality maps with a fine spatial resolution. Given the general interest in air quality monitoring, low-cost air quality sensors have become an active area of research and development. Low-cost air quality sensors can be deployed at… Expand

Calibrating Low-Cost Sensors by a Two-Phase Learning Approach for Urban Air Quality Measurement
This paper proposes an automatic feature selection algorithm based on AIC (Akaike information criterion) for the linear model, which helps avoid overfitting due to the inclusion of inappropriate features. Expand
ICT: In-field Calibration Transfer for Air Quality Sensor Deployments
In-field Calibration Transfer (ICT) is proposed, a calibration scheme that transfers the calibration parameters of source sensors (with access to references) to target sensors (without access to References) that is able to calibrate the target sensors as if they had direct access to the references.
