Data Simulation in Machine Olfaction with the R Package Chemosensors

Figure 4

Scoreplot corresponding to the Principal Component Analysis of the sensor array data gathered from the array consisting of 12 sensors of types 13, 14 and 17.

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 the array have more affinity to analyte A than to analyte C. The plot is produced by the plotPCA method applied to the sensor array.
