Description

Introduction to Machine Olfaction Devices discusses the various aspects of a MOD device, from historical approaches to state-of-the-art technologies. The book also covers the mechanism in dealing and detecting gases, odour and aroma. Problems and solutions relevant to present day design have been outlined as well as a step by step guide to MOD design. Sensors and gas systems plus polymer and certain manufacturing process have been discussed, together with other relevant materials for the MOD process and functions including comparison and validations, data processing, data analysis, MOD new design, micro systems, and monitoring systems.

Aimed at developing a novel and improved MOD with more efficient on-board data processing capability for monitoring applications, this book will help you to design an MOD with a:

1. Faster stabilizing base line
2. Quicker sample result display
3. Ability to use ambient air
4. Low power consumption
5. The ability to deal with different varieties of organic/inorganic samples

With a focus on the most important and relevant aspects of designing machine olfaction devices (MOD) which currently require a solution, topics covered include MOD and market issues, cost, technical issues, and MOD applications.

With a huge range of potential applications, this book will be of special interest to those working (or studying) in this field at every level, from Biomedical, Energy, or Electrical Engineers, to Computer or Food Scientists.
