Every vehicle releases gases of its own, but improper vehicle maintenance causes pollutants such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur dioxide to be released. The pollutants generated by the emissions are a major contributor to global warming and cause serious health and visual problems. The aim of this paper is to use a waspmote sensor system near the vehicle's exhaust to track and regulate pollutant emissions from the vehicle. The pollution control circuit is made up of a number of sensors, including a smoke sensor, a temperature sensor, and wireless communication devices, all of which are integrated and linked to a controller. The vehicle's emission level is continuously monitored, and if it exceeds the standard threshold pollution level, a short message service (SMS) is created and sent through the Global System for Mobile communications (GSM) module to a pre-defined number stored in the memory. The Global Positioning System (GPS) module is used to identify the vehicle's current location, after which the administrator takes the appropriate actions
