Abstract

Exposure to toxic gases will affect the well-being of people in the nearby area if it is not carefully monitored. This study proposes a Wireless Electronic Nose (e-nose) System to monitor some toxic gases, temperature and humidity in the environment. The environment is monitored by using four units of wireless e-nose known as node, positioned at pre-determined locations. The node consists of toxic gases sensors as well as temperature and humidity sensor that acquired data from the environment in 30 minutes interval. The acquired data is sent wirelessly to the main node through NRF24L01 Radio Frequency (RF) transceiver. The main node transmits the data to a web of things system via Mobile Communication/General Radio Packet Service (GSM/GPRS) module. The acquired data is analysed using Principal Component Analysis (PCA), Hierarchical Cluster Analysis (HCA) and Radial Basis Function (RBF) of the Artificial Neural Network (ANN). Initial result shows that the system is able to monitor the toxic gases in the testing area.
