Short summary
This study describes the design of a sensor unit featuring NO2 and O3 sensors for applications such as ambient air quality monitoring. The paper presents the sensor calibration, the testing procedure and the long-term deployment of the sensor units in the city of Zurich. Main conclusions are the necessity of a proper mathematical description of the sensors as well as a concept to monitor sensor performance during operation, e.g. by linking low-cost sensors to traditional infrastructure.
