On the need to create a monitoring system for safe gas consumption in multi-apartment residential buildings for a smart city
Keywords:gas leak, semiconductor sensor, detector, identification, solenoid valve
Smart city is not only the application of a large number of digital and electronic technologies for transforming the life and working environment of the city, it is mainly ensuring the safety of citizens' lives. The security component in the Smart City concept includes issues of safe consumption of electricity, gas and water. To solve the problems that have arisen and ensure the safety of the population, it is necessary to install devices for detecting and fixing gas leaks in apartments, houses and buildings. For several years, the Georgian Technical University (Tbilisi) has been working on the creation of a new, innovative gas leak detector based on the semiconductor sensor of the Japanese company Figaro Engineering and on the creation of a gas control and gas leakage system in residential premises, including for multi-apartment high-rise buildings, which will be an obligatory component (subsystem) of the "Smart Home" and "Smart City". However, it should be noted that the installation of the above devices in individual apartments does not solve the problem of ensuring security for the entire apartment building, since they should be installed in all apartments without exception. It is clear that a gas explosion in high-rise buildings will lead to destruction of neighboring apartments. Therefore, it is necessary to create a monitoring system for safe gas consumption for the entire apartment building.
