Metropolitan cities in the world have long been suffering from serious air pollution problems. In Tokyo, the high levels of nitrogen oxides and ozone resulting from heavy traffic emission are of the greatest concern. However, the cost and size of the chemical analyzers have limited the number of environmental monitoring stations and, therefore, have resulted in insufficient spatial resolution in the measurement of pollutant distributions. The authors have been proposing a gas distribution analyzing system (GASDAS). The use of gas sensors enables compact and inexpensive sensing systems, and will lead to a significant increase in the density of monitoring sites. As a first step in the development of GASDAS, nitrogen dioxide and ozone monitoring systems have been developed. The experimental results have shown that the low-cost sensor systems with signal compensation features for the change in weather conditions can be used for the quantitative measurement of spatial pollutant distributions.
