Electronic nose to detect harmful airborne agents

leave a comment

A prototype of an electronic nose to detect harmful airborne agents such as pesticides, biological weapons, gas leaks and other unwanted presences has been developed at University of California.

The “electronic nose” will eventually be developed into three platforms: a handheld device, which could be used for environmental monitoring, a smaller wearable version useful for monitoring air quality, and a smartphone-integrated system, which the team reports could detect a potentially harmful airborne agent.

This is a very important sensor to include into robots, as well.
