ABSTRACT: Electronic Nose, i.e. E-Nose is an alternate system to assess the quality of food using their odours. The odours have the information about the ripeness of the food and also contain the qualitative as well as quantitative information. To assess this information with the proper sensing system, the quality of the food is to be predicted. In this research work, eight volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are analysed and tested for identification of the different VOCs using the developed e-nose system. The aroma data is recorded using Vapour Detection UNIT” application program developed in the Laboratory Virtual Instrument Electronic Workbench (Lab VIEW ) software environment in the personal computer (PC ) for analysis. Peripheral Interface Controller (PIC ) microcontroller has all the necessary features to develop an E-Nose system. PIC is used for reading the sensors signal. Analog input channel of microcontroller is used to capture the E-Nose responses. Total eight metal oxide nonspecific gas sensors are used in this research work. The achfeved results have very clear dfscrimination between the different VOC samples. Therefore, using these results, one can have used this research work for the development of their own gas sensing / electronic nose system for different applications.
