O3, NO2, PM1, PM2.5, PM10, temperature, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure and solar radiation low-cost sensors have been co-located with the certified air quality monitoring station of Bolzano - Italy (UTM 46°49′44″ N, 11°34′24″ E, 262 m a.s.l.) managed by the local environmental agency (APPA). The filed campaign is aimed at comparing the low-cost sensors' timeseries to high-resolution instruments, which comply with the protocol for standardized acquisition released by the European Environmental Agency. The core unit of the low-cost sensors acquisition system is a Raspberry Pi 4, which couples to the sensors via the I2C bus. Specifically, the low-cost sensors involved in the campaign are: O3 (Alphasense OX-A431), NO2 (Alphasense NO2-A431) and PM1, 2.5, 10 (Alphasense OPC-N3), Tin/RHin (Sensirion SHT31), Tout/RHout (Galtech PM15PS), atmospheric pressure (Bosch Sensortech BMP388), and SR (Apogee SP 420 Smart).
