Described in this work are the results of field tests carried out in the Tricity Agglomeration between 01 April 2018 and 30 June 2018 in order to evaluate the usefulness of low-cost PM10 sensors in atmospheric air quality monitoring. The results were juxtaposed with the results obtained using reference methods. The results were validated based on the measurement uncertainty as described in the EU report "Demonstration of Equivalence of Ambient Air Monitoring Methods. EC Working Group on Guidance for the Demonstration of Equivalence". Moreover, the impact of external factors (humidity, pressure, temperature) on the obtained results was also assessed. It was shown that the low-cost sensors display measurement uncertainty which exceeds the acceptable values as compared to the reference methods and correction factors depending on the measured PM10 concentration need to be introduced in order to fulfil the criteria of equivalence.
