Abstract

The Sharp GP2Y1010AU0F is a widely used low-cost dust sensor, but despite its popularity, the manufacturer provides little information on the sensor. We installed 16 sensing nodes with Sharp dust sensors in a hot rolling mill of a steel factory. Our analysis shows a clear correlation between sensor drift and accumulated production of the steel factory. An eye should be kept on the long-term drift of the sensors to prevent early saturation. Two of 16 sensors experienced full saturation, each after around eight and ten months of operation.
