In the framework of indoor air monitoring, this paper proposes an Internet of Things ready solution to detect and classify contaminants. It is based on a compact and low-power integrated system including both sensing and processing capabilities. The sensing is composed of a sensor array on which electrical impedance measurements are performed through a microchip, named SENSIPLUS, while the processing phase is mainly based on Machine Learning techniques, embedded in a low power and low resources micro controller unit, for classification purposes. An extensive experimental campaign on different contaminants has been carried out and raw sensor data have been processed through a lightweight Multi Layer Perceptron for embedded implementation. More complex and computationally costly Deep Learning techniques, as Convolutional Neural Network and Long Short Term Memory, have been adopted as a reference for the validation of Multi Layer Perceptron performance. Results prove good classification capabilities, obtaining an accuracy greater than 75% in average. The obtained results, jointly with the reduced computational costs of the solution, highlight that this proposal is a proof of concept for a pervasive IoT air monitoring system.
