    Abstract :

    Pollution control board to take the safety measures if the concentration is above the threshold High industrialization and increasing vehicular traffic on the roads have problem of air pollution. Air Pollutants are required to be monitored which are emitted by large number of sources. Inhaling of these harmful gases above the threshold limit may even cause death to persons. As a solution to this issue a portable, low cost, simple Air pollutant gas detection unit has been designed and developed which is capable to detect the poisonous gases like carbon monoxide, explosive gas like methane within seconds and raise alarm if the concentration of any gas is beyond the threshold limit. Commercially available sensors were found sensitive, but less selective towards its target gases. To detect the poisonous gases we use Gas sensors like MQ7 and MQ2. MQ7 gas sensor is used to detect the Carbon monoxide whereas MQ2 gas sensor is used to detect the harmful methane. It is necessary to detect and monitor the poisonous harmful gases like Carbon monoxide and methane. Concentration of gas is monitored and information is send to limit.
