Abstract:
    The idea is to make device that would save lives of people because of toxic gas build-ups or gas leakage at both domestic and industrial level. Gasense aims to provide simple and economical solution.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Small industries do not generally take serious measures for work safety, mainly due to the expense and complexities involved. Moreover, domestic case of suffocation and similar incidence due to gas build-ups are periodically reported. Gasense aims to provide simple and economical solution.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Industries, laboratories where the probability of uncontrollable toxic gas emissions are high are the prime beneficiaries. in the long run we plan to make Gasense a standard requirement for any enclosed space where toxic gas can build up e.g; combustion product (toxic CO gas at domestic level
How will the solution works
    The Gasense will use doped ZnO nanostructures for sensing presence of toxic gases. This sensing material is sensitive to the presence of toxic gases and proper doping material will make it able to detect only targeted gas. As gas concentration increases beyond the safety health level at a place, it will raise an alarm to attract the user unless the system reaches to a secure level.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Gas sensor are usually imported in Pakistan and there are no registered company that are manufacturing it in Pakistan so we don't have any competitors and our idea is different in the sense that our sensors are more sensitive and selective as compared to that are available in the market.
