User-definable software applied to a real-time ambient air quality monitoring system
by P. Halpern, J. W. Rettberg
With increased tightening of air quality regulations, more systems for monitoring air quality became necessary. The greater use of such systems further stimulated the development of sensor-based systems that require less programming effort. The goal was to have a practical, real-time system with the ability to change the configuration of the sensors without extensively modifying the associated software. Described is a prototypical system that avoids the necessity of reprogramming every time sensors are changed.
