Artificial Olfaction System for On-site Odour Measurement
Summary This project is associated with PRJ005556 Lowcost robust calibration technique for odour sensing instruments, which was a necessary prerequisite towards commercialising the AOS.
This research will develop a prototype, robust and reliable portable odour assessment instrument utilising nonspecific gas sensor array(s) combined with a signal processing engine. This instrument can be used for onsite odour assessment.
Program Chicken Meat
Research organisation The State of Queensland acting through the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries
Objective summary The project will:
Undertake market research to identify potential market segments and their needs with respect to features required;
Incorporate appropriate design features that will meet the needs of identified key market segments;
Develop a prototype AOS to meet the needs of identified key market segments; and
Evaluate and demonstrate the sensitivity and discrimination capability of the AOS through intensive field trials in Australia.
Development of a volatile organic compound (VOC) preconcentration technique
Development of a prototype field olfactometer to enable more cost effective AOS training (reduced olfactometry costs)
Validation of the AOS prototype in conjunction with other relevant RIRDC projects, with the construction of an additional AOS unit for this purpose
