Air quality is of great importance for human health and life expectancy. It becomes crucial to monitor atmospheric dust in the air of cities. In connection with the development of mobile networks and low-cost sensory agents, it has become possible to create inexpensive environmental monitoring systems. The paper presents results of studies on the system monitoring dust concentration in city air. The system consists of moving IoT agents placed on vehicles (taxies, busses, private cars) and measure the dust concentration. Agents, using a wireless connection, are sending the data to the recording server. The server application collects the data and visualises them on the map in a certain colour, depending on the dust concentration in the air and the values acceptable by standards. The system architecture, the algorithm of measurements and the agent-server data exchange protocol were presented in the article, as well as the example of data visualisation.
