The Health Effects Institute(HEI) reported recently that the deaths from the negative health effects of the air pollution in the Middle East Region is about 500,000 people. Therefore, this paper presents a new design and development of portable system; called GASDUINO that allows the user to measure the quality of air using the Internet of Things (IoT). The main components of developed GASDUINO system are the Arduino microcontroller board, Gas sensor (MQ-135), Android user interface (UI) connected with all things via Remote XY Arduino cloud. The developed system can alarm the users about the dangerous levels of the air quality index (AQI) or the particle per million (PPM) levels in the range of 0 to above 200 PPM. The developed GASDUINO system is considered as an essential environmental module in the development and sustainability of future smart cities.
