Need to Reduce the Exposure of Toxic Gases in Road and Rail Tunnels
Tunnel construction has increased during the last decade to improve road and rail connectivity. Tunnels are confined spaces that are typically built through mountains or underground, resulting in inadequate ventilation. This can result in the accumulation of harmful gases inside the tunnel, which can have a negative influence on people's health. Carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), ammonia (NH3), nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2), ozone (O3), sulfur dioxide (SO2), and hydrogen sulfide are some of the gases commonly found in tunnels (H2S). As a result, the demand for tunnel sensors to assess gaseous concentration has surged in recent years. Another significant function of tunnel sensors is to monitor visibility within tunnels in order to assure air clarity for drivers traveling through the tunnel and, as a result, to prevent accidents in the tunnel.
