Workplan

The project work plan will be made up of 4 work packages.

The objective of the first 3 is to identify the footprint of COVID19, the mixture of volatile compounds that are emitted in respiration that identify COVID19.

The 4 is to bring the PMV to a commercial product.

Subsequently, development will continue to achieve devices that detect any disease, generating a new line of business for odor medicine "Breathonics as service".

The first work package (Hardware) is the most critical. Because it is necessary to select a series of sensors that have the ability to identify the footprint of COVID19.

To select them we will proceed through the following process:

  • Carrying out a spectrometric analysis of the air of a sick person from COVID19
  • The comparison between the previously obtained result and those known, through scientific bibliography, of related diseases.

In this way there would be a list of potential compounds that would have to be acquired by the appropriate sensors and incorporated into the hardware.

The next step would be to check that this hardware works, being carried out among a certain number of volunteers, who spend their illness at home.

The hardware will have a “friendly” application that will serve as an interface between the electronic board and the user, allowing the indication of their health status and the sending of information to a database.

If it is verified that everything works correctly and detects, a greater number of volunteers would be passed on to obtain relevant data.

All the data will be concentrated in a database, where different artificial intelligence algorithms will be applied to detect the COVID19 footprint.

Once the fingerprint (the combination of volatile compounds that are emitted when breathing and that identifies COVID19) has been detected, it is possible to continue with the development to transform this PMV to a commercial class IIA medical device.

In later phases, development will continue to commercialize medical devices with the capacity to detect any present and future disease, generating a new line of business in SMASP on odor medicine that will be called “Breathonics as service”

The different work packages are detailed below.
