About this Workshop:

In this workshop, you'll learn how to classify different smells/fragrance with the Himax WE-I Plus board and the TVOC sensor from the SparkFun Qwiic Environmental Combination breakout. You will collect and train your machine learning model using Edge Impulse. Finally you will deploy your own custom model back to the board and classify your samples in real time.

Workshop details:

  • One 90 minute workshop
  • Beginner/Intermediate skill level
  • Hands-On, Instructor-Led
  • Recorded workshop

Bring your collection of perfume, smelly food, drinks...and let's hack things together!
