The Odosense Smart is a smart odour monitoring device specially developed to monitor odorants in the ambient atmosphere. The Odosense smart is a sensor-based IoT powered online odour monitor for peripheral monitoring across odourful sites and activities. So, the smart odour monitor is used for applications like monitoring in and around facilities like solid waste monitoring plants.
Odour monitoring around solid waste plants, dump yards and landfills is very crucial as they are usually around the city vicinity and the odour nuisance could be a health hazard for the surrounding residents. It is also essential to keep a track of odour intensity to take suggestive actions like planning odour mitigation activities. Additionally, in the case of false complaints, the authorities have the data for reference purposes.
Odosense Smart measures odourful parameters such as Sulfur Dioxide (SO2), Hydrogen sulphide (H2S), Ammonia (NH3), Methyl Mercaptan (CH3SH), TVOC (Benzene, Toluene, Xylene), Temperature and Humidity.
The Odosense Smart is technologically equipped to offer higher accuracy with features such as patented e-breathing technology, Auto device firmware updates, and remote calibration capabilities. Additionally, our systems are backed with AI ML algorithms to understand odour levels and impact.
Odosense Smart Odour Monitoring Device can transmit data through various data communication modules such as GSM, WiFi, LORA, etc. So, the data is transmitted to the Oizom cloud in near real-time. Additionally, it has an inbuilt memory backup to ensure no data loss in case of network failure. This ensures the best device uptime. The collected data can be visualized on the Oizom IoT Terminal in the form of real-time dashboards, upon collection on a dense network of data points and integrating weather data we can also generate odour plumes and odour dispersion heatmaps. By integrating data from the Odosense Smart onto 3rd party odour modelling platforms we can also enable advanced analytics on the odour levels.

Our odour monitoring device works on proven working principles such as NDIR, PID, Electrochemical Analysis, Semiconductor, Optical Measurement. As a part of our proprietary ‘Micro Active Sampling’ (e-breathing technology), we also have a sophisticated suction-and-exhaust system for air sample collection and monitoring inside a controlled environment. This isolates the effect of the external environment on measurement to achieve 13% higher accuracy than the industry standards.
Electrochemical Analysis – The gaseous emission is treated electrochemically, where an external potential is applied. Each species such as CO2, H2S, CH4, etc. is identified depending on their oxidation or reduction potential.
NDIR – The gases emitted from the location undergo Non-dispersive Infrared Radiation where the sample air is subjected to infrared radiation. Different gaseous molecules absorb IR at different frequencies. Hence, the amount of IR absorbed gives the volumetric concentration of each gaseous constituent.
PID – The photoionization detection method is used to quantify TVOCs present in the sample. Highly energized UV photons bombard the molecules, which ionize and make them positively charged. These ionized molecules, in return, produce an electric current which gives a volumetric concentration of the molecules. So, the higher the current generated, the higher is the gaseous concentration in the sample.
