Use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Monitoring of Air Pollution Generated by Stationary Sources

Pavel Jirava, Michal Kuřík

Abstract

This paper is focused on the use of unmanned aerial vehicles for the monitoring of air pollution by stationary sources. A quadrocope with digital image capture was used for experiments. The data thus obtained was processed and the Ringelmann scale method for determining the darkness of the smoke plume was applied.. The values obtained are relevant and can be used to determine the rate of air pollution by a stationary source. The advantage of this proposed procedure are the low costs of realization and reduction of the influence of the human factor on determining the darkness of the smoke and finally no need for direct access to the stationary source of air pollution.
