Moreover, it would stimulate the enhancement of the company’s sensors with semiconductorization, to expand the digital olfactory market.

For the record, Aroma’s compact odor imaging sensor can generate a visualization pattern from various odors inputs. It can achieve advanced odor resolution and, with being inexpensive and small, could help manufacturers and IT companies across the globe to form join projects with odor sensor hardware as well as with the utilization of digital odor data.

Moreover, the smell sense is the least digitized of the five senses, and the digital olfactory technology market is near to enter the takeoff phase.

Reports suggest that, with this third-party allocation of new shares, Aroma Bit would be using its technical strength to achieve mass production. Moreover, the company is planning to strengthen and expand its management system to support the development and improvement of new services and products that leverage its odor sensor hardware and digital odor database.
