Actually there are many measures to prevent accidents caused by gas leaks and/or gas generations. However, only gas sensors have the ability to detect directly the actual gas concentration when gas leaks and/or generations occur. That means, gas sensors are the final protection against gas accidents. In the following, the important role of chemical gas sensors in preventing accidents in industrial, residential, and commercial applications in Japan is described and future perspectives are illustrated.
