The MESSAGE project investigates the use of low cost wireless sensors and their deployment to create a dense, ad-hoc network in a road environment. Each of the sensors will capture one or more of the pollutants directly associated with road vehicle emissions. This paper will provide an overview of the deployment of a MOTEs network in Gateshead, UK, to measure a variety of pollutants. The research will cover three distinct areas: the network development; the pollutants to be monitored; and an investigation as to how the data collected could be used to validate and calibrate emissions and dispersions models.
