S. J. Johnston et al., "Testing Smart City environmental monitoring technology using small scale temporary cities," 2019 IEEE 5th World Forum on Internet of Things (WF-IoT), 2019, pp. 578-583, doi: 10.1109/WF-IoT.2019.8767274.



Exposure to particulate matter has been identified as a major health problem worldwide. Established measurement
techniques require equipment costing many thousands of dollars and specialist expertise to maintain. Ongoing research
is investigating the use of low cost <$300 sensors to enable greater temporal-spatial density of readings to be taken. There
are questions about the suitability and reliability of these low-cost sensors, queries which can be addressed by deploying
and evaluating the sensors in a real world application. We propose festival site as small scale cities to enable a short term
deployments and evaluation of sensors. We present data from these devices and experiences gained from using a festival site as a substitute for a city.
