Its first product, the NeOse Pro™, launched at CES 2018, delivers this unique olfaction technology in an easy-to-use, handheld unit.
In this new scenario, digital olfaction is the key to quantify smells in the car—both nuisance, such as cigarette smell, and those indicating component malfunctions, such as a fuel leak—to ensure health and comfort of drivers.
In addition to setting standards, the DOAC will collaborate to create an accessible reference database for odors, evaluate prototype sensors and analytic software versions from Aryballe Technologies, and also receive substantial engineering support in their proof-of-concept innovation initiatives.
“We feel that creating alignment at this critical juncture in the automotive industry is key to developing standards for future digital olfaction products that fit the requirements of the market,” said Sam Guilaumé, Aryballe CEO. “We’re excited to build partnerships that will realize our vision of miniaturized, reliable, low-cost olfaction sensors that resonate across the automotive value chain.”
The founding members of the DOAC met at CES 2019 to set the group’s initiatives and priorities for the year. Aryballe expects to expand the group to include more OEMs, suppliers and fleet service providers with additional programs still to be announced.
