Data Simulation in Machine Olfaction with the R Package Chemosensors

Figure 3

Scoreplot corresponding to the Principal Component Analysis of the sensor array data gathered from the array consisting of 12 sensors of types 1, 2 and 3.

The array was exposed to six gas classes: pure analyte A at concentrations 0.01 and 0.05 (labels A 0.01 and A 0.05), pure analyte C at concentrations 0.1 and 1 (C 0.1 and C 1), and two binary mixtures of A and C (A 0.01, C 0.1 and A 0.05, C 1). The concentrations were given at volume fraction units vol.%, and the measurement of each gas class was repeated 10 times. The distribution of the scores shows that the sensors in array have more affinity to analyte C that to analyte A. The plot is produced by the plotPCA method applied to the sensor array.
