IBEC Seminar: Hiroshi Ishida, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology

Friday, July 20, 2018 @ 10:00 am11:00 am

Active Flow Generation for Mobile Robot Olfaction and Olfactory Assisting Devices

Prof. Hiroshi Ishida, Graduate School of Bio-Applications and Systems Engineering, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology

Mobile robots can be used as moving platforms for various gas sensing tasks in the field, e.g., gas source localization and gas distribution mapping. In the presentation, it will be shown that actively generated airflow can be used to facilitate such robotic gas sensing tasks. Reception of chemical substances at the chemical sensors on a robot can be significantly enhanced by generating a carefully designed airflow field around the sensors. Olfactory assist systems that allow the user to sense smells with amplified sensitivities are also reported.
