What cool sensor-enabled products
were at CES 2018?

At CES 2018, exhibiting companies displayed many new products for smart homes, smart health, smart cars and more. Digital healthcare had several sessions and many companies displayed their innovative solutions. A digital nose gets into healthcare and other critical applications.

With the goal of identifying and analyzing in real time the ambient air quality, an alimentary risk or also its health status, RUBIX WEAR unveiled the first electronic, miniaturized, smart and compatible with smartphones, nose.

“Our miniaturized E nose is based on MOS MEMS. Due to our unique data processing, we create virtual gas sensors arrays based on two or four sensors and we do generate a large set of fingerprints associated with some data banks in the cloud. Therefore, we can analyze very large set of gases and odors,” says Jean-Christophe Mifsud PhD, president & CEO, RUBIX S&I SAS.

Connected to a smartphone and artificial intelligence in the cloud, the micro gas sensors can measure and identify environmental air quality and nuisances such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or even odors as well as find the source of the offending odor. The sensing system can even measure similarities and differences between a variety of good and bad odors.

In addition to monitoring indoor and outdoor air quality, other application possibilities for these sensors include managing intelligent houses and monitoring health status with a non­invasive approach. For example, breathe and skin measurements can be used for both prescreening and long-term follow-up on different pathologies.

Votre smartphone va avoir du nez

Un boîtier développé à Toulouse analyse la qualité de l’air, un risque alimentaire ou votre état de santé. Rubix Wear, c’est le premier nez électronique miniaturisé et intelligent qui s’emboîte sur un smartphone. La start-up de Toulouse (Haute-Garonne) Rubix Senses & Instrumentation, spécialisée depuis 2016 dans l’expertise des nuisances intérieures et extérieures, l’a dévoilé au salon CES de Las Vegas. Equipé de microcapteurs, le boîtier est capable d’analyser en temps réel la qualité de l’air ambiant, un risque alimentaire ou un état de santé, à partir d’un gaz, d’une odeur ou d’une haleine, et identifie la source de nuisance.

La municipalité de Los Angeles intéressée par le projet

«Notre nez électronique se concentre sur 72 mauvaises odeurs recensées dans le cloud, comme les colles, la sueur ou la cigarette, explique le fondateur Jean-Christophe Mifsud. Nous avons également travaillé sur d’autres boîtiers spécialisés dans d’autres nuisances : bruit, lumière, vibrations, pression, particules allergènes.»
Ainsi, la ville de Los Angeles a retenu leur technologie pour analyser la qualité de son air, mais aussi pour aider sa police, en détectant le bruit des bris de glace et des armes à feu. La commercialisation du nez miniaturisé (autour de 200 EUR) est prévue d’ici fin 2018. La start-up, qui compte plusieurs entreprises du CAC 40 parmi ses clients, a lancé une levée de fonds de 2 MEUR pour poursuivre son développement. «Par exemple, des montres intelligentes permettront aux particuliers de surveiller la qualité de leur environnement lorsqu’ils amènent leurs enfants à l’école, mangent au restaurant ou font un jogging», annonce Jean-Christophe Mifsud.
