Electronic Nose on a Drone Sniffs out Wastewater Treatment Plant Stink

Electronic Nose on a Drone Sniffs out Wastewater Treatment Plant Stink

Researchers have engineered a portable electronic nose that's almost as sharp as a human nose at sniffing out the stink of wastewater treatment plants. Coupled with a drone, the lightweight e-nose can measure the concentration of different smells, predict odor intensity, and produce a real-time odor map of the plant for management.

High Performance, Breathable Fabric to Power Small Electronics

High Performance, Breathable Fabric to Power Small Electronics

The triboelectric effect is a phenomenon where a charge is generated on two dissimilar materials when the materials are moved apart after being in contact with each other. Triboelectric nanogenerators use this effect to convert mechanical motion into electrical energy. The compactness of TENGs allows them to be used as wearable devices that can harness the motion of the body to power electronics.
