Advancements in the field of communications are moving towards the internet of things (IoTs). Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) can be used to monitor environmental conditions such as pollution using independent sensors communicating with each other using the IoTs technology thereby leading to a more accurate environmental monitoring system. Air pollution is a critical environmental challenge which is a major concern in cities and will have to be reduced if cities are to be regarded as smart cities. It has negative short and long term effects on human health that would deter people from moving to cities which would ultimately prevent economic growth. Therefore, the air pollution around the city and along traffic routes could be monitored using WSN nodes. In this work, the stationary nodes around the city would be deployed periodically to collect pollution data from sensors at the node. These data would be stored locally in its memory with a time and location stamp. Mobile nodes placed on public buses, buildings and vehicles would wirelessly collect the data as they pass by the stationary nodes. The data would then be processed once the nodes arrived back at the pollution monitoring system. In the proposed architecture, the stationary nodes run on ZigBee standard while the mobile nodes run on fifth generation (5G) and Long-time evolution (LTE).
