Another potential further use is to adjust thermostats and connected devices to new customer needs. Gas sensors in innovative fitness armbands can already measure the quality of room air or the alcohol level in the air we breathe.
The Styrian microelectronics and sensor producer ams, which is listed on the Zurich stock exchange, developed an assembly kit combining two environmental sensors. One is a gas sensor-on-chip (SSoC) to detect carbon dioxide and volatile organic compounds in indoor paces. The other is a sensor designed to measure relative humidity and temperature with a very high level of precision. Together with the ams algorithms, the two sensors provide a complete solution to monitor indoor air quality while using little electricity. The two sensors require only a single spot on the densely packed circuit boards.
