Enhanced Artificial Senses in Human The Smart Nose

V. Shreyas, H. L. Gururaj, S. Rajini, J. B. Shilpashree


Human senses play a prominent role in one's everyday life, and it is the most basic function anyone can have in them. Not just humans but even animals have these sense, in fact we know that some animals like dogs and elephants have better sensing abilities than humans. It would have been fascinating if humans had better sensing abilities than dogs and could have been less dependent on animals in the field of military or other defense forces. In this paper, we propose a method where humans can increase their smelling abilities through artificial way by using electronic nose.

Keywords: electronic nose, sensors, bionic eye
