Biology has inspired solutions to many engineering problems, including those encountered in chemical sensing. Modern approaches to chemical sensing have been based on the biological principle of combining cross-selective chemical sensors with a pattern recognition engine to identify odors. In this poster, we will review some recent advances made by our group in mimicking biological design and computing principles to develop a neuromorphic electronic nose.
