We report here the development of a new vapor sensing device that is designed as an array of optically based chemosensors providing input to a pattern recognition system incorporating artificial neural networks. Distributed sensors providing inputs to an integrative circuit is a principle derived from studies of the vertebrate olfactory system. In the present device, primary chemosensing input is provided by an array of fiber-optic sensors. The individual fiber sensors, which are broadly yet… CONTINUE READING
