 Environmental gas sensor technology with artificial intelligence

What is claimed to be the first gas sensor with artificial intelligence and integrated highly linear and highly accurate pressure, humidity and temperature sensors, has been launched by Bosch with its BME688 which complements the Rutronik sensors portfolio.

With the BME AI-Studio tool, it is also possible to train the BME688 gas scanner for individual applications, such as in household appliances, IoT products or smart homes.

Its gas scanner function, which can be adjusted for sensitivity, selectivity, data rate and power consumption, makes it possible to detect volatile organic compounds (VOCs), volatile sulfur compounds (VSCs), as well as other gases such as carbon monoxide and hydrogen in the ppb range. Other benefits highlighted by the manufacturer include: Robustness; a compact size of 3.0 x 3.0 x 0.9 mm³; and low power consumption.
