The most significant effect of industrialization is air pollution. Air pollution monitoring has become an important requirement in affected areas. With the advancement of electronic sensor technology and the Internet of Things (IoT), there are plenty of remote ambient air quality monitoring systems have been developed by measuring the levels of major air pollutants such as Sulfur Dioxide, (SO2), Carbon Monoxide (CO), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), Ozone (O3), and Particulate Matter (PM). However, other hazardous gases such as Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), Carbon Monoxide (CO), and Ammonia (NH3) also have the potential to appear in factory areas, especially factory areas located in rural areas. Therefore, this study proposes a low-cost mobile ambient air quality monitoring system by measuring CO, H2S, and NH3 gas levels that are easy to implement. The proposed system has been tested in factory areas and rural areas where factory pollutants can be mixed with agricultural pollutants. The test results show that the proposed system can detect CO, H2S, and NH3 gas levels. The levels of CO, H2S, and NH3 gases at the test site were still at a safe level. A mobile remote monitoring scheme by utilizing thinger.io as an IoT platform also works very well.
