Olfaction plays an important role in orienting animal behaviors such as search for foods, alert danger of predator and finding mate. The olfaction system to discriminate system had been investigated by numbers of research groups and most of it were conducted manually which exposure the worker to potential hazardous gas leakage. This research intended to investigate an autonomous odour source localization using mobile robot. This will eliminate the danger faced by the worker from hazardous gas. The approach is to automate the robot sensing strategies and navigation algorithm while searching for the odour source. The experiment procedures are continued using other algorithm and their performance are being evaluated. The results demonstrated that by using two gas sensors coupled with three ultrasonic sensors, an effective robot navigation algorithm can be used for the odour source localization.
