Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are air pollutants that are harmful to humans and animals. These invisible gases cause smog, deteriorate living and workplace environments, threaten underground water reservoirs, and can cause devastating illnesses. Some examples of VOCs are benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene, and formaldehyde.
Omniscent is using MEMS technology to build an autonomous VOC analyzer with multiple gas detection, real-time measurements, laboratory quality results at a fraction of the cost of a standard laboratory GC system with similar capabilities.
The Omni-2100 can detect VOCs in real-time and provide timely actionable insights. The table below identifies the specific VOC, its impact and source.
It is well established that VOCs are caused formation of ground level smog and serious threat to underground water sources.
The operator of autonomous vehicles like to monitor the cabin air quality in order to provide a safe passenger environment. Since there is no driver in the car, passengers could be subject to leftover fumes from cigarette smoke, animal feces, and many other substances. The ability to simultaneously detect multiple VOCs makes the Omni-2100 a perfect sensor for use in autonomous vehicles to ensure passenger safety.
