Our products for the
digital smell world


Hardware and Software Solutions

Our products are designed for use in unlimited electronic and IoT applications in various areas. Our core invention, the Smell iX16 detector chip is highly sensitive to various gases, smells and VOCs and uses just 1 μW of power. It can thus be powered by a range of host devices, energy harvesters or batteries. The Smell iX16 detector chip can also be tuned and optimized for a particular use case. When implemented as the Smell Board it can easily be integrated in different electronic appliances.

Smell Annotator is an AI-based software program used to detect, annotate and analyze smells measured with the Smell Inspector, our developer’s device. Digital smell patterns are produced by an array of tiny gas detectors. By using machine learning algorithms our technology learns to recognize smells. Our digital smell database is being extended every day with new smell measurements, which helps to constantly improve smell detection efficiency.


Smell Inspector is a developer kit and a ready-to-use device for anyone. It has four Smell iX16 detectors inside, can be connected to a PC, tablet or smartphone and can be operated with Smell Annotator software.
