Here's a fun one anyone could start on.

 

Traditionally, air pollution is measured by expensive, stationary and complex air-monitoring instrumentation. Only a few organizations, like Federal, State and some industries, typically collect data of such high quality. Even so, this limits the amount of environmental monitoring data that is often available for exposure and health assessments. As air quality management problems become more complex, there is a need for enhanced air quality and exposure monitoring capabilities.

 

To meet this growing technological need, EPA, the commercial sensor industry, academic institutions, and others, are developing, evaluating and applying a variety of innovative technologies.

Similar project done with a Pi 

 

The AirPi is a shield for the Raspberry Pi which can automatically provide information to the Raspberry Pi about temperature, humidity, air pressure, NO2 levels, CO levels, light levels and UV levels.

There is a waiting list for the shield but you could prototype one easily enough with a breadboard and components.

 

Here's even the instruction on how to do it

 

Follow these steps to build your own AirPi

Oh, very very nice.

 

Wonder if either projet could also be modified to detect Radon?

 

That could be a great seller....
