The researcher-duo, Dr
The duo claims that the model is first of its kind in world. Till now the air pollution is measured using conventional sensors and using linear interpolation techniques; instead, we have employed nano-sensors of different material for detecting different pollutants and Fuzzy logic techniques, which help us arrive at more precise data.
Using conventional methods, IIT-Kanpur along with

Dr Nilesh explained that they used nano-gold assembled gas sensor for detection of SO2, single walled carbon nano tubes with zinc oxide composites for NO2, EDM 365 sensor for detection of Particulate Matter. "The nano-sensors detect the minutest particles and make the calculation much accurate," he said.
"The fuzzy inputs are fed to the system and then defuzzified using MATLAB FLC to get the results. The model may be developed some time very soon and will be used in future for detection of air pollution levels," said Pankaj. And the model with some changes can also detect pollution levels in water, he added.
