Background/objectives: The air pollution level is increasing immensely because of several issues, such as emission of highly inflammable gases from factories, an alarming rise in the use of petrol and diesel vehicles for personal commute, and various other sources that generate smoke; all of this have an seriously harmful impact on human health and are responsible for various diseases. Therefore, the objective of this article is to propose an improved and handy system of mask wearing which will help reduce the hazardous effects of air pollution on human health. Methods/findings: After analysing and comparing several products available in the market, a handy and easy-functioning Adriano-based intelligent pollution mask is proposed. This particular design of mask can detect and filter hazardous air pollutants using various sensors. It can also indicate and communicate the pollution level through an inbuilt app with other mask-wearers, including information about which areas to avoid that have very high air pollution. Improvements/application: Because it can detect and filter out several toxic gasses, this product is can be a great solution for preventing the harmful/dangerous effects of air pollution on the human body and, consequently, preventing diseases resulting from breathing highly polluted and saving many lives.
