Original Paper


Electronic Nose, as an artificial olfaction system, has potential applications in environmental monitoring because of its proven ability to recognize and discriminate between a variety of different gases and odors. In this paper, we used a chemical sensor array to develop an electronic nose to detect and identify seven different gases (H2, C2H2, CH4, CH3OCH3, CO, NO2, and NH3). These gas sensors are chosen because of its hierarchical/doped nanostructure characteristics, which give them a very high sensitivity and low response time; we improve the linearity response and temperature dependence using models based on artificial neural networks. We used in Electronic nose a pattern recognition based on artificial neural network, which discriminates qualitatively and quantitatively seven gases and has a fast response.
