London: Scientists have developed a miniature smartphone sensor that can identify the type and amount of gases in air samples.

Gas measurements made with smartphones will make activities such as the detection of internal air problems easier, researchers said.

In addition, sleep quality will be measurable with greater precision, using mobile health-care applications which gauge carbon dioxide quantities, researchers said.  Many sensor developers are interested in using smartphones to measure gas concentrations.  “This is probably due to the spread of the Internet of Things (IoT), which enables indirect observations of a range of environmental factors based on data gathered from single sensors or sensor networks,” said Anna Rissanen from VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland.
