Design and Implementation of Smart Dust Sensing System for Baghdad City

Abstract

The atmosphere in the world and especially in Iraq is yearly exposed to many dust storms that cause dust floated, which negatively affects the health of people, animals and agriculture. In this research, a system is proposed that used sensor to continuously measure the level of dust in the air of Baghdad city 24 hours /7 days a week. Then analyzing these measurements to determine the level of risk impact on people health especially people with respiratory diseases. The proposed system has the ability of sending warning text message expressing the level of potential threat to the people.In order to accelerate the rapid processing, an accurate Arduino Uno microcontroller was used to measure the density of the dust and make the required processing. In addition to, using the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) type SIMS900 as SMS sender.The advantages of this system is represented by its ability to alert the people about air pollution in real time, ease of use (where mobile devices are available to most people in Baghdad) and the low cost of sending a message.
