CRIM-TRACK - Sensor system for detection of criminal

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference abstract in proceedingsResearchpeer-review


    The detection of illegal compounds is an important analytical problem which requires reliable, selective and sensitive detection method that provides the highest level of confidence in the result. Moreover, to contribute in the successful development the automated target acquisition, identification and signal processing of data from the sensor is mandatory. Enhancements to sensing
    methods, recognition ability and target detection time lead with the algorithms improvements in software that is complementary to improving sensor hardware. In the end, the sensing device should be portable, rapid, easy in use, highly sensitive, specific (minimal false positives), and low cost.
    The aim of the CRIM-TRACK project is to demonstrate a working sensing device that can be developed into a portable, miniaturized, automated, rapid, low cost, highly sensitive, and simple “sniffer” and detection unit, based on a disposable micro-colorimetric chip. The unit can be used for identification of a wide variety of illegal drugs, drug precursors and home-made explosives. The project combines highly advanced disciplines, like organic chemistry, micro fabrication and hardware technology, machine learning and signal processing techniques. It will provide custom officers, police and other authorities with an effective tool to control trafficking of illegal drugs and drug precursors.
