In this paper we report on the evaluation of an E-nose system for objective evaluation of the smell of sweat in shoe/socking systems by comparison with a human sensory panel. The test system is based on temperature cycled semiconductor gas sensors to achieve good stability for field use of the system without the requirement for frequent recalibration. The ultimate goal is to provide a tool for developing improved shoe/sock systems with optimized materials. The main...
