Abstract

In the past few years, Internet of Things (IoT) has emerged as an outstanding technology and can be considered as the backbone of the smart world era as it connects physical devices with the internet. On the other hand there are these intelligent conversation interfaces that use a dialogue system to have a conversation with the users and are already used widely. In this paper, we focus on integration of chatbots and IoT to address a critical problem like air quality awareness. We present the architecture of the chatbot and its implementation on an instant messaging application. The chatbot not only provides air quality, temperature and humidity information to the users but also provides services like subscription to air quality monitoring nodes in a particular area or any part of the service region, alarm services, threshold settings, geoquery and recommendation based on the pollutant levels. A detailed explanation of the scenario of use, challenges identified during development process and possible future directions of this integration have also been addressed.
