Gas Leak Detector

The Project

I have designed "Gas Leak Detector" which is built on Seeed's Wio Terminal. It 's connected with Multichannel gas sensor and a fan. I am running a tinyML model on the microcontroller to detect if there is any smell of diesel in the air. When diesel is detected, I am sending a push notification through Blynk app.

I chose to make this project because...

Leakage is serious problem in cold weather like east coast of the USA, where people use diesel to heat up the house during winter. Typically tanks are in the basement where people don't visit everyday. So leakage may be unnoticed and lead to fire or major repair cost.

What I found difficult and how I worked it out

Before I added fan, ML model was not able to predict timely. When I was shaking the diesel container, it was able to pick the smell. So I realized a fan can circulate the air and improve my device. As I initially captured data from a different place, ML model was not working in the basement.

Next time, I would...

I would probably add a solar panel because there are lots of houses that have outdoor oil tanks. Solar panel will reduce electricity consumption and reduce CO2 emission.
