Gas Sensing Solutions investigates levels of CO2 on car journeys

Gas Sensing Solutions investigates levels of CO2 on car journeys
Ever wondered why long car journeys make you feel tired and sleepy? Is it the boredom of endless, never changing motorways or perhaps something else? Gas Sensing Solutions, wondered if it could be a build-up of CO2 gas because, at levels of 1,000ppm and above, people can become drowsy and lethargic. So they took a CO2 datalogger from their gas sensor range on a road trip to find out how CO2 levels changed throughout the journey.
