Inventors: Elisabeth Smela, Pamela Abshire
Electronic noses are being developed as systems for the automated detection and classification of vapors and gases. Most often they are composed of a chemical sensing system (eg. sensor array or spectrophotometer) and a pattern recognition system (ie. artificial neural network).
Researchers at the University of Maryland are developing cell based chemical sensors. These novel sensors will offer an opportunity for both sensitivity and specificity that cannot be matched by conventional electronic noses.
