(TVU) – Tra Vinh University has just installed and operated four air quality monitoring systems at the main campus, TVU hospital and other two campuses. 

According to the evaluation report, this air quality monitoring system has currently measured the air quality index in the range of 45-60 (from 0 to 50 is good and from 51 to 100 is moderate). 

After the system came into operation, it has received very positive feedback from students and local people. To track these indicators, it is suggested to install the application called PAM Air on smartphones.
