Project summary description:
The main objective of the Project is to enhance CSIRO’s existing hydrogen seep tracker prototype (3H Tracker). This multigas monitoring units is already designed to detect hydrogen and other gases. The current focus lies on improving the engineering and electronic aspects as well as strengthening data analytics capabilities of these devices for autonomous and continuous monitoring.

The project includes a series of comprehensive testing and calibration processes to maintain high performance standards of these units. Concurrently, the project explores effective production and manufacturing techniques to enable larger-scale production, while ensuring the quality and performance of the devices remain uncompromised.
