Abstract:
In today’s society, there is a challenge to detect and to avoid exposure to harmful and lethal chemicals. This remains an issue to public health and has not been addressed adequately. To address this challenging issue, the objective of this paper is to provide a unique perspective in designing and building a custom-made mobile handheld chemical detection (CHCD) device that can detect harmful and lethal chemical gases (NO2, N2, CO, CO2, LPG, CH4, CNG, C2H5OH, NH3, H2 and others) in public and in private gathering places. This mobile handheld device can relay the information of the chemical concentration levels detected to smartphone or tablet or laptop in any place at any time. Applications of this useful mobile CHCD prototyping device include detection of harmful gases in public and in private gathering places such as subway stations, shopping malls, airports, and residential houses. Additionally, this mobile CHCD device provides an alternative and affordable resource for people to have and use it as an advance warning system within the proximity of dangerous areas.
