Collaborating with Leaders in Automotive
The Digital Olfaction Automotive Consortium brings together key players across the automotive industry to address industry trends attributed to new mobility services and the evolution of self-driving cars.
Look up the word “odor” in a dictionary, and you’ll find one definition to be, “a distinctive smell, especially an unpleasant one.” But in our world of digital olfaction, odor is much more complex. Scientifically speaking, odor consists of one or more volatilized...
As sensor networks are integrated into everything from industrial controls to automobiles, odors attributed to specific wire coatings can be an early warning sign to potential failures. Digital olfaction provides real-time indicators for different wire coatings when heated above their normal operating temperatures.
The automotive and mobility market is going through a tremendous shift right now with the rise of connected, autonomous, shared and electrified technologies. This shift has not only impacted the products available to the market, but consumer behaviors as well.
