This paper describes the development and the characterization of a wireless gas sensor network (WGSN) for the detection of combustible or explosive gases. The WGSN consists of a sensor node, a relay node, a network coordinator, and a wireless actuator. The sensor node attains early gas detection using an on board 2D semiconductor sensor. Because the sensor consumes a substantial amount of power, which negatively affects the node lifetime, we employ a pulse heating profile to achieve significant energy savings. The relay node receives and forwards traffic from sensor nodes towards the network coordinator and vice versa. When an emergency is detected, the network coordinator alarms an operator through the GSM/GPRS or Ethernet network, and may autonomously control the source of gas emission through the wireless actuator. Our experimental results demonstrate how to determine the optimal temperature of the sensor's sensitive layer for methane detection, show the response time of the sensor to various gases, and evaluate the power consumption of the sensor node. The demonstrated WGSN could be used for a wide range of gas monitoring applications. © 2019 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved

Abstract

This paper describes the development and the characterization of a wireless gas sensor network (WGSN) for the detection of combustible or explosive gases. The WGSN consists of a sensor node, a relay node, a network coordinator, and a wireless actuator. The sensor node attains early gas detection using an on board 2D semiconductor sensor. Because the sensor consumes a substantial amount of power, which negatively affects the node lifetime, we employ a pulse heating profile to achieve significant energy savings. The relay node receives and forwards traffic from sensor nodes towards the network coordinator and vice versa. When an emergency is detected, the network coordinator alarms an operator through the GSM/GPRS or Ethernet network, and may autonomously control the source of gas emission through the wireless actuator. Our experimental results demonstrate how to determine the optimal temperature of the sensor's sensitive layer for methane detection, show the response time of the sensor to various gases, and evaluate the power consumption of the sensor node. The demonstrated WGSN could be used for a wide range of gas monitoring applications. © 2019 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved
