NEW! Standard measure for scent and odor
Seven visionary organizations, i.e. National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), Kyocera Corporation, Osaka University, NEC Corporation, Sumitomo Seika Chemicals Co., Ltd., Asahi Kasei Corporation and NanoWorld AG., jointly launched the MSS Forum on November 1, 2017. This initiative is designed to promote establishment of a de facto standard for olfactory IoT sensing systems
The MSS Forum conducts validation experiments in various fields to identify further issues for commercialization and to deepen and accelerate R&D for solutions to these issues. In addition, it aims to create components/modules and solutions that enable each of the constituent technologies of the MSS olfactory IoT sensing systems to be more easily utilized in product concepts of people in industry and carry out basic R&D including the provision of measurement, analysis and databases services.
Our logo is designed to consist of the three-letter acronym combined with a symbol of an elephant that possesses “superior” sense of smell, much keener than a dog.
