Abstract: Monitoring air pollution in cities requires installation of a huge number of static sensors which is both cost and labor intensive. For this reason, we consider the installation of mobile sensors on top of public transport vehicles. This leads to the problem of selecting a subnetwork of a city’s public transport network to achieve a good coverage in the area. Since failures and signal drift over time are typical for low-cost sensors, the selected vehicles have to occasionally be in each others vicinity to allow sensor recalibration. If the vehicles can pass by reference stations, the recalibration quality can be further improved. In this demonstration, we illustrate different solutions to the problem of subnetwork selection based on the tram network of Zurich and visualize the results in Google Maps and Google Earth.
