Air pollution is a serious problem in Vietnam, especially in urban areas with high pressures of population, traffic, construction, and industrial development. Besides high accurate measurements from automatic and continuous monitoring ground stations and high-cost sensor devices, low-cost sensors have recently utilized to extent air pollution monitoring networks although their data quality is still argumentative. In this paper, we present a low-cost device, named FAirKit, which measured 6 basic air pollutants including PM2.5, PM10, CO, O3, NO2, and SO2, and temperature and relative humidity. The sensors are calibrated with standard devices to improve their data quality. FAirKits are installed and transferred data in real-time to servers where an information system based on Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) standard of Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) has been developed to store, process, and visualize real-time air pollution information. Currently, the low-cost sensors network has been deploying in Hanoi, Vietnam to enhance public awareness and alert local people to air pollution.
