A source of stress for passengers, the presence of suspicious odors in the aircraft cabin is a subject taken very seriously by aircraft manufacturers and airlines. Indeed, it can go as far as the diversion or premature landing of an airplane.
It is therefore necessary to provide an answer to this problem. This is the objective of the Quality Air project, which aims to detect abnormal pollution events by developing a unique solution integrating monitoring micro-sensors and also offering the capacity to treat pollutants by catalytic conversion.
This 3-year project brings together a consortium of large companies, SMEs, start-ups and laboratories: Liebherr, CTI, Enercat, Rubix and the laboratories of Laas CNRS and CNRS Rhône Auvergne.
The Occitanie region and BPI France are supporting this project by providing financial support to the various partners.
In this context, Rubix benefits from a grant from the Occitanie Region to develop embedded micro-sensors and intelligence for processing measured data.
