Master thesis/Bachelor thesis

Field test and comparison of freely available gas sensors for selective measurement of methanol, xylene and formaldehyde
Work location
Karlsruhe, Germany
Type of job
Master thesis/
Bachelor thesis


In order to ensure the occupational safety of employees in the laboratory environment, a sensor system is to be developed which makes it possible to assess the individual risk to employees from exposure to gas concentrations (e.g. xylene, formaldehyde, ethanol...) in the laboratory environment and to compare it with applicable guidelines.

The aim of the thesis is to identify sensor technology freely available on the market for the selective measurement of xylene, formaldehyde and ethanol and to evaluate its suitability for use in the target system on the basis of test measurements in the field. In addition to sensor cross-sensitivity, further evaluation criteria must be defined and applied.

No prior knowledge is necessary for the execution of this thesis. The thesis is carried out in cooperation between the Institute for Automation and Applied Informatics (IAI) and SenseING GmbH.
