Maintaining public safety is on of the leading problem of the word. The use technology to prevent casualty or harm to people is necessary to adopt by today’s generation.This study uses the principle of Electronic Nose to prevent any scenarios that could put public safety at risk specifically in the form of bombing. ENose is a concept of using the sense of smell using gas sensor to analyze and determine the specific compound or chemical. This idea will be used in order to detect the 2 chemical agents of an IED type of bomb, TATP, as the main charge. The study practices the ENose to replicate the ability of dog to use its sense of smell to detect bombs since dogs are the most reliable detecting tool for bomb operations. Performance of the system is also monitored under different circumstances.
