Mobile olfactory robots can be used in a number of relevant application areas where a better understanding of a gas distribution is needed, such as environmental monitoring and safety and security related fields.
- Gas Distribution ModelingGas distribution modeling (GDM) is the process of deriving a truthful representation of how gases are dispersed in an environment from a set of spatially and temporally distributed measurements of relevant variables.
- Gas SensingGas sensing is the task of detecting volatile substances and providing a conversion of that information into a signal or electrical magnitude readable by an operator or instrument. In the field of artificial olfaction, devices that fullfill this task are known as Electronic noses (e-nose).
- Odor ClassificationOdor recognition deals with the problem of identifying which of a set of odor categories a new volatile sample belongs to.
