At CES 2019, NanoScent reveals VOC Watch, a revolutionary detector that senses, monitors, alerts, and traces specific VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) in the air. A widespread of smell receptors combined with a machine learning system identifies smells and gases and creates a real-time map of scents for industrial plants, fuel distilleries, and smart cities. VOC Watch allows the factory manager to see at a glance the plant’s exhaust status, identify an exception with an immediate warning and send a team to the field to repair it. The picture is obtained in real time from all the devices located in the factory, deployed at a density of 30-70 meters and transmitted to the cloud. The factory worker can pinpoint the exact source of the leak in both a map view and a simulation of laminated reality.
