Full sensing subsystem with interface for external testing

Deliverable D3.3 is a prototype of the sensing subsystem. The prototype will be based on a first version of a measurement ASIC (resulting from T3.2) and of chemical sensors (T3.1.1). The prototype will be implemented and tested under lab conditions. Main target for this prototype is to demonstrate full functionality of the sensing subsystem and to achieve the expected size for the system integration. Testing of the prototype is done with external lab equipment. Partners will have access to the prototype for an assessment of the sensitivity of the sensor subsystem for the dedicated chemical substances.

Heat-sink prototype

This deliverable results from T5.6. In addition to the prototype, a report will be delivered containing: a) Verified values for the achievable temperature gradients across the TEG under the considered mission profiles, b) Definition of designated use-cases for thermoelectric energy harvesting in sewage pipes. Responsible: FhG-IZM-ERE (4 PM)

Revised sensing subsystem

Deliverable D3.5 is a prototype of the sensing subsystem. The prototype will be based on an improved version of a measurement ASIC (result from T3.3. and T3.5) and of chemical sensors (T3.1.2). Improved specifications for the chemical sensors and the ASIC are derived from the evaluation report D3.4. The prototype is dedicated for the integration of the sensing subsystem into the mole ring. Further prototypes of the sensing subsystem are provided which can be used by CFLP and BKA for chemical analysis of chemical substances under lab conditions. Responsible: CS (1 PM), FhG (5 PM), UGENT (12 PM), UCBL (0,5 PM).

ASIC and the electrodes for internal testing

This prototype comes after the work on Task 3.4. This prototype will be used for preliminary integration in WP6 and WP8, and validation of the specified interface. Responsible: CS (1 PM), FhG (5 PM), UGENT (31 PM), UCBL (0,5 PM).

Improved electrodes

Deliverable D3.7 comprises the design and optimization of the sensor electrodes towards the final selected target compounds. This deliverable is in direct continuation of D2.5, D3.2 and D3.3, where the outcome of several important deliverables converge. The results of the compound stability tests will determine the final selection of compounds which should be detected (D2.5). A better knowledge of the sewage constitution will identify potential challenges for the sensor operation and allow to modify and improve the sensor surface. The prototype of the ASIC and the electrodes will be evaluated internally (D3.2) and the full sensing subsystem will be tested externally (D3.3). The results of these tests are a first and important evaluation of the integrated sensing system prototype and will provide insight into the working of the sensing system as a whole. This information will be used to improve or change the sensor electrodes and thus adapt the multi-array towards the final sensing system. The robustness of the electro-chemical sensors towards ATS specific compounds in waste water will be evaluated and, if needed, improved.
