The Internet of Things paradigm originates from the proliferation of intelligent devices that can sense, compute and communicate data streams in a ubiquitous information and communication network. The great amounts of data coming from these devices introduce some challenges related to the storage and processing capabilities of the information. This strengthens the novel paradigm known as Big Data. In such a complex scenario, the Cloud computing is an efficient solution for the managing of sensor data. This paper presents Polluino, a system for monitoring the air pollution via Arduino. Moreover, a Cloud-based platform that manages data coming from air quality sensors is developed.
