Review of Valerij GrašIč. “Comparative analysis of different segments of air quality Sensors for the field of smart environment and their importance for The development of smart cities”. Zbornik radova međunarodne naučne Konferencije o digitalnoj ekonomiji diec 6:189-204. Https://www.Ceeol.Com/search/article-detail?Id=1176869 The central and eastern european online library

This communication is in line with Dr. Valerij Grašič’s previous publications  focus on telecommunication and smart city technologies. The article broadly focuses on the critical role of air quality sensors in smart environments and their significance in the development of smart cities. It delves into the comparative analysis of different types of these sensors, assessing their capabilities, limitations, and potential applications in smart city framework.

The general problem the article addresses is the need for effective air quality monitoring in urban environments. As urban areas continue to grow and face environmental challenges, the deployment of advanced sensor technologies becomes imperative. The article explores how different air quality sensors can meet these challenges and contribute to the overall health and sustainability of smart cities.

The key project of the article is the comparative analysis itself. It involves examining various air quality sensors, understanding their functionalities, and determining how they can be integrated into smart city infrastructures to enhance environmental monitoring and management. This analysis involves evaluating various air quality sensors’ performance, data openness, and integration capabilities.

There are however major limitations.  The methodology is appropriate for the study’s aim. It considers relevant factors affecting air quality monitoring in smart cities : however, it does not factor previous studies on the efficiency of each monitoring solution to failsafe said monitoring. While the approach is comprehensive in terms of evaluating various sensor types, it might benefit from a broader geographic scope or inclusion of more cities for a more generalizable conclusion. For an early communication, we believe the research could have dvelved a little deeper into the problem. 

The discussion likely ties the findings to broader implications for smart city development. It might address the practical applications of these sensors in real-world urban settings. Some advice for a future publication :  

    • Geographic Scope: Including multiple cities in different regions could provide a more diverse and comprehensive understanding of the sensors’ applicability.
    • Stakeholder Perspective: Integrating viewpoints from city planners, residents, and environmental experts could add depth to the understanding of sensor impacts.
    • Longitudinal Study: A long-term study could reveal more about sensor durability and long-term efficacy in air quality monitoring.
