DARBA awarded Evolved Machines a contract to work on developing an artificial olfactory system. The $5 M plus contract will advance research by combining that done at various sites into one. The goal is to develop an advanced robotic system to detect various smells and odors. Applications may include drug or explosive sniffing as done by dogs currently. It could also be used to monitor cargo and high value targets such as water supplies.
