This chapter describes the use of smell in detecting and preventing crime, and in particular the development of electronic noses (e-noses) for this purpose. The sense of smell and its relevance to crime and security are described, followed by an introduction to the design and applications of e-noses. Finally an in-depth case study of explosives detection with e-noses is presented.
