Odosense is an advanced odour monitoring system that utilizes e-nose technology to continuously detect, measure, and monitor odourful and toxic gases. It is particularly useful in industries such as landfill sites, wastewater treatment facilities, fertilizers, paper-pulp industries, and soil-treatment sites where odour nuisance and potential health hazards are prevalent.
The system consists of a network of e-noses called Odosense, strategically positioned around the site perimeter. These e-noses are capable of measuring various odourous parameters, including Sulphur Dioxide (SO2), Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S), Ammonia (NH3), Methyl Mercaptan, Total Volatile Organic Compounds (TVOC) such as Benzene, Toluene, Xylene, Formaldehyde (CH2O), Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2), Chlorine (Cl2), as well as temperature and humidity.
In addition to odour monitoring, the system can also monitor meteorological parameters like wind speed and direction using external modules. This allows for the tracking of odour plume dispersion and identification of odour sources.
Odosense offers real-time monitoring, providing immediate information on odour intensity. It acts as an alarm system in the event of accidental releases of pollutants, and the odour plume dispersion data can be used to trace back the source of the odour. This enables proactive planning of odour mitigation activities. Furthermore, in cases of false complaints, the collected data serves as a reference for the authorities.
The system incorporates advanced technology features to ensure accuracy and reliability. It uses unique e-breathing technology, which enhances measurement accuracy. Auto device firmware upgrades and remote calibration capabilities further optimize system performance. AI and machine learning algorithms are employed to analyze smell levels and their impact.
Data communication modules such as GSM, WiFi, and LORA enable seamless data transmission from the Odosense devices. The collected data is transferred to the Oizom cloud in near real-time, ensuring continuous monitoring and preventing data loss in case of network failures. The Oizom IoT Terminal provides users with real-time dashboards for visualizing the collected data. Odour plumes and dispersion heatmaps can be generated based on a dense network of data points and integration with weather data. This allows for advanced analytics and integration with third-party odour modelling platforms.
The odour data collected by Odosense can also be valuable for various industrial automation applications in an Industrial IoT (IIoT) environment, enabling enhanced control and optimization of processes.
