  • Abstract

    The use of electronic nose (e-nose) devices plus principal component analysis can help the process of categorizing the 16 different rice into its type. Generally, the physical feature of an e-nose own more than one hole to capture the odour of rice. For example, the portable e-nose so-called Insniff does have 10 holes (or variables). In this situations, we will have a dataset that consist high-dimension dataset where lead to the presence of interdependencies between all variables under study. Therefore, this study is presented to investigate the odour of rice for identifying the most important variables contributing to the rice odour readings. The principal component analysis (PCA) is implemented to determine the component that best represent the all 10 variables in order to eliminate the interdependency problem, and (2) to identify which variable is considered as important and influential to the newly-formed principle component (PC). The results from PCA suggested that the first two principle components is chosen. It is based on three assessments which are Kaiser’s criterion larger than 1, cumulative proportion of total variance, and scree plot. These two principle components explained 89% of total variance. Results showed that sensor 1 (0.931) and sensor 2 (0.966) are the two important variables that highly contribute to PC1. On the other hand, for PC2, the highest contribution is from sensor 8 (0.828). This study demonstrate that PCA is effective for investigating rice odour readings.
