Similar to regular masks, the smart mask will also come with standard air filtering material. It will also calculate the “pollution absorption quantity” and note the total time the user wore the mask. The sensor can also calculate the amount of air that the user has breathed in a specific amount of time. This mask can also connect with the smartphone and then check the air quality index of your area. Also Read - Xiaomi teases the launch of Mi Purely Air Mask tomorrow

In addition, the smart mask will also feature heath sensors in the system. These sensors can record respiratory volume with each breather along with the total number of breaths. Xiaomi may also add an accelerometer and gyroscope in the mask to check if the user was moving while breathing. There the mask can calculate the number of pollutants that a user has inhaled along with the filtration capacity. All this data can provide the quality of air that a user is breathing.
