VOCSens is a spin-off from the Sensors, Microsystems and Actuators Laboratory of Louvain (SMALL) research group, within the Electrical Engineering Department (ELEN), Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, Electronics and Applied Mathematics (ICTEAM), Université catholique de Louvain (UCLouvain), Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. UCLouvain is one of the most prestigious universities in Europe and home to worldly recognized laboratories. It relies on a strong expertise based on more than 10 years research on CMOS-compatible environmental sensors development and characterization, including gas, temperature, humidity and pressure sensors, as well as the CMOS design of read-out interfaces.

The spin-off aims to the development and commercialization of ultra-low-power low-cost multi-pixel CMOS gas microsensors dedicated to selective gases and volatile compounds detection in the Internet of Things and the Industry 4.0. The first product, EnviCam®, reflecting the concept of “environmental camera”, efficiently combines gas, particulates, temperature and humidity sensors in a unique low-cost smart sensing platform featuring wireless communication through LPWAN networks. The main applications are found in environmental monitoring and industrial control (EHS, HVAC systems, alarm, etc.).
