© 2017 IEEE. Poor air quality in urban areas is becoming an important problem that needs to be addressed. This paper presents the system architecture of project Urb@nEcoLife for compilation of environmental data using low-cost data sensors. Although there are several proposals dealing with sensor networks, most of them focus on solving partial problems. Urb@nEcoLife is a comprehensive proposal that develops a low-cost hardware platform together with a software architecture and a custom network topology. In addition, its main contribution is the introduction of crowdsourcing to get a really useful system for users by providing them with alerts, advises, reports and forecasts. Urb@nEcoLife is in its initial stages of development. Currently, work is underway on the development of the network architecture and the integration of the sensing devices.
