INDUSTRY

As the automotive industry adopts new models like shared economy and robo-taxis, olfaction measurement companies have the unique opportunity to improve the user experience in a way that can speed adoption.

DIGITAL OLFACTION
CAN BE USED FOR

Automotive Material
Characterization

  • Objective classification of VOCs for plastics and fabrics
  • Enables quantitative standards for acceptable level of odors
  • Assists in control of branded “new car smell” odor
  • Enables modification of odor acceptability based on geographic consumer preferences

Preventative
Maintenance Alerts

  • Signal early warning signs for component malfunction like electronics degradation or battery aging
  • Detect fluid leaks like dripping oil or fuel before catastrophic failure
  • Assist in diagnosing system failures

Ensuring a Positive
User Experience

  • Alert central fleet management when ride sharing asset requires service due to odors in the car before a poor customer experience occurs
  • Detect driver behavior that violates rental contract (ex. Smoking, pets, etc.)
  • Enable enforcement of clean car policies for ridesharing companies with quantifiable cabin odor data
