Inspection and Notification of Vehicle Emissionin Smart Cities


The vehicular emission is a very important aspect these days in the cities of Internet of Things (IOT) or commonly known as the Smart Cities. Since years the vehicular emission is being checked with the help of PUC in the cities across the country. The vehicular emission is mostly caused due to the incomplete combustion of fuel which results in the production of Carbon Monoxide (CO). Thus this manual detection of the vehicular emission has to stop some day and the trend needs to be changed. With the help of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) and RFID components this trend could be set up. This paper proposes such a system to inspect the vehicular emission by measuring the CO produced by the vehicle with additional features like detecting LPG leakage in vehicles running on gas and also a feature of measurement of engine temperature so as to prevent failure of the vehicle. All this information is gathered over a RFID tag present on a particular vehicle. This gathered information is sent to the RFID receiver present onto the traffic signal. The received data is analyzed and accordingly the owners of the vehicle are notified if any of the three cases of emission exceeding, gas leakage or engine temperature exceeding takes place. In all this is a nice system with the three features mentioned and that too at a comparatively low cost.
