In this paper, we present our proposed air quality monitoring system with multiple data sources for smart cities. We deploy our system in one of the biggest cities in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City. The proposed system uses data collected by our sensors and extracted from remote sensing images. The system also allows users to contribute by provide alerts through a portal. With data collected from sensors, we can provide exact values of fundamental parameters for calculating air quality index (AQI) while data extracted from remote sensing images help governors estimate the AQI values in surrounding areas without sensors deployed. This estimation although cannot provide exact information as sensors, it helps us to quickly understand AQI in an extremely large area with low cost. Along with these data sources, notifications from users also allow governors to react unawareness problems faster. Experimental results show the error (difference) between our systems and commercial devices is less than 24% for sensoring system and less than 9% for remote sensing images estimation. The sensoring system presented in this paper is low-energy consumption when using only 900mW in average.
