SSK Tool Kit Air pollution is contamination of the indoor or outdoor environment by any chemical, physical or biological agent that modifies the natural characteristics of the atmosphere (WHO, 2013). Today, air pollution is one of the major environmental concerns on a global scale yet it has got an ominous threat to the environment, human health and welfare. Rapid industrialization and urbanization of the world has resulted in uncontrolled, large amounts of noxious emissions into the atmosphere and the problem is becoming worse in developing countries. One of the biggest sources of these emissions is the transportation industry. Automobiles using internal combustion engines burn fossil fuels to generate power and these engines emit NOx, CO and unburnt hydrocarbons (UHCs). These pollutants are harmful to human health with about 3.3 million premature deaths recorded in 2010 due to outdoor pollution and in presence of sunlight, these substances result information of O3 at ground level. Prevention of emission of these pollutants is thus crucial, by pre-combustion as well as post-combustion techniques. Transportation in today’s world is the most inevitable part of daily life, thus eliminating fuel combustion completely is not a viable solution, making post-combustion technique most effective. From this research we decided to prototype an on-point automotive portable fume detector called “SSK Tool Kit”. The portable kit uses optics principles based on laser diodes and basic electronics whose results are interfaced on a smart phone using an application to act as a monitor. Using this kit traffic offices can carry out on-point emission detection by placing the diode sensor pack at the car exhaust pipe outlet. Such measures have proved to work and solve most of the traffic problems like the gun used on over speed and of course the alcohol detector
