olfaction factors

A study on the olfactory perception of a scent embedded into different construction materials. Six different materials were saturated with a ginger essence. Each material was then placed into a sealed environment which fluctuated in both temperature and humidity. Temperature and humidity sensors recorded the fluctuations in arduino while a female participant sensed the intensity of the essence of the changing environment. The results are shown on this graphic.
