The presentation outlines the problems associated with poor indoor air quality (IAQ) and the challenges in detecting air pollutants in a reliable way. It will then show, by using a gas sensor from Cambridge CMOS Sensors (CCS), how it is possible to monitor the IAQ with a miniature, low power, highly integrated gas sensor. Ideally suited to high volume consumer applications, the presentation will outline how this will enable a step change in awareness of the air we breathe.. The technology will be presented, as well as performance data, including real world use cases.
