The sensor uses biological cells to simulate the nose of bomb-sniffing dogs.
TheAirbus is on track to begin testing a new sensor that can detect bombs at airports, which seems to have been inspired by the nose of sniffing dogs.
The Financial Times tells us that the sensor was developed by a startup called Koniku, which decided to use biological cells capable of detecting smell. The idea is to launch the first of these sensors in 2020.
In addition to the ability to detect bombs, Koniku believes that sensors can also be used for medical purposes and help detect cancer patients.
