Abstract
The problem of methane sensor application in the domestic environment is presented. Tin dioxide thick film technology sensor conductance changes depending on methane concentration. Simple calibration cannot be approached because the conductance is also strongly influenced by humidity. Nevertheless, despite changing humidity accurate methane concentration determination is possible using a two-sensor system. It includes methane sensor and very selective humidity sensor. Artificial neural network is used for reasoning about methane concentration based on responses of these sensors. Feedforward type network is simulated, trained with backpropagation method and tested. The network's accuracy is compared with simple calibration of the sensor.
