Increasing populations and industrial activity are threatening our environment. Air pollutants are emitted at a very high rate. With the technological innovation and advancement, smart cities have come into existence where Information Technology is used for better optimization and resources planning hence promoting the sustainable growth and development. Internet of Things and Data Analytics together can lead an organization to better cost management, avoiding equipment failures and improving business operations. We propose Air Quality Measurement System which can effectively keep a track over Air quality in atmosphere. Internet is used for end to end connectivity. The parameters sensed by the system are sent to the server through a Cellular Network System. Communication between device and server is deployed over lightweight Message Queuing Telemetry Transportation (MQTT) protocol.
