The software version 1.6 extends the detection capabilities of the Second Sight MS with Gas X, multiple gases visualization and a user-own-gas database.
The Gas X detection is a unique algorithm that detects a gas cloud at distance even if the gas signature is not in the database. This enables the detection of unknown gases, mixtures or impure gases. Identification is still provided in case the gas signature matches one included in the database.
The visualization of the multiple gases is enhanced. Each gas cloud is tracked independently and is depicted in real time as an overlay in blue color. The intensity of the signal is translated in the opacity of the blue color. Identification, confidence index and concentration are given live for each gas cloud. Last but not least, version 1.6 includes a new feature for research purposes.
The user is able to update the database with their own gas. In practical terms, the user has the capability to teach the system a gas release live. During the gas X detection, the user indicates on the software the name of the gas in front of the Second Sight MS so that the new gas signature is recorded in the database. The Second Sight MS is able to identify this gas in a future gas alarm.
The Version 1.6 is released in October 2016 and is compatible with all Second Sight MS-V2. Do not hesitate to ask for an update.
