Overview

This book deals with the development of what are known as the electronic nose and the electronic tongue, that is to say odor and taste sensors. Of all sensor technologies, these have been widely considered as the most difficult to realize." "These sensors have been developed on the basis of mechanisms found in biological systems, such as parallel processing of multi-dimensional information or by the use of bio-materials." "This book will be of value to researchers from a wide range of fields, including electrical engineering, food science, electronics, mechanical engineering, medical science, biochemistry, biophysics and biotechnology.
