This study is collaboration with Environmental Science and Technology (EST) and Electronics and Communication Technology (ECT) students. The study outline to a descriptive-comparative and experimental type, because the Innovated Automatic Utility Model were used to assess the air quality in the Brgy. Tambobong and Brgy. Balacanas, Villanueva, Misamis Oriental. It emphasizes the automation process of which the device will detect the air quality and automatically compare the detected values with the National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS) and set an alarm if it exceeds set standards. It is beneficial for the residents and its neighboring barangays, because it was given awareness to the people as to quality of air where the public are breathing. The health of the people of the barangay is the prime concern of this study. The study is designed to withstand different weather condition present in the community. The device is a Solar Panel based that has a 5 Volt output, with a battery as backup supply during night time. The prototype design uses sensors that could detect certain pollutant, these sensors are wired to a Micro-controller and programmed to allow the device to give real-time output based on the air pollutants present in the atmosphere and compare the reading with the given National Ambient Air Quality Standards (NAAQS). The prototype is operating twenty four (24) hours and seven (7) days a week to monitor and asses the air quality of the said Barangay. This study presumes to be reliable to monitor the quality of the air. Furthermore, this study aims the awareness on the community of the hazardous pollutants.
