Classification of Odours for Mobile Robots Using an Ensemble of Linear Classifiers
Proceedings of the 13th International Symposium on Olfaction and Electronic Nose (ISOEN), April 15-17, 2009, Brescia, Italy.
Abstract: This paper investigates the classification of odours using an electronic nose mounted on a mobile robot. The samples are collected as the robot explores the environment. Under such conditions, the sensor response differs from typical three phase sampling processes. In this paper, we focus particularly on the classification problem and how it is influenced by the movement of the robot. To cope with these influences, an algorithm consisting of an ensemble of classifiers is presented. Experimental results show that this algorithm increases classification performance compared to other traditional classification methods.
