Get this from a library! Sensors and actuators [Society of Automotive Engineers.;]. The book offers an excellent basis for designing a course on sensors and actuators." ―Sander Stuijk, Eindhoven University of Technology "In addition to providing circuits and examples of sensors and actuators, this book develops entire system awareness, describing methods commonly used in industry for integrating components to function as a Price: $ Book Description. This book contains the proceedings of a conference held at the Manchester Business School on July It covers the topics of fundamental materials studies and the design and fabrication of prototype devices, and represents a cross section of the UK activity in sensors and actuators. This book covers in-depth the various polymers that are used for sensors and actuators from the vantage point of organic chemistry. Since many chemists may not be familiar with the physics and operational specifics of sensors, the book has a general chapter dealing with the overall physics and basic principles of sensors.
Sensors and Actuators A: Physical brings together multidisciplinary interests in one journal entirely devoted to disseminating information on all aspects of research and development of solid-state devices for transducing physical s and Actuators A: Physical regularly publishes original papers, letters to the Editors and from time to time invited review articles within the. From authors renowned in the fields of engineering and biology, this is the first book to integrate sensor and actuator technology with bioinspired design. Beginning with detailed descriptions of actuation and sensing mechanisms in plants and animals, the authors move on to apply these principles to synthetic design, offering in-depth knowledge. Sensors & Actuators, B: Chemical is an interdisciplinary journal dedicated to publishing research and development in the field of chemical sensors and biosensors, chemical actuators and analytical microsystems. The journal aims to promote original works that demonstrate significant progress beyond the current state of the art in these fields along with applicability to solve meaningful. This book “connects the dots” of theory and circuits basics into meaningful systems and real-world applications. Designed to introduce students and practitioners to the principles and applications of sensors and actuators, this book discusses processing hardware and the embedded systems software that connects them.
I am pleased to present this volume in the Series: Electromechanical Sensors and Actuators, by Ilene Busch-Vishniac. The selection of this volume under scores again the interest of the Mechanical Engineering series to provide our readers with topical monographs as well as . The accuracy requirements for such devices are much more demanding than for previous applications. Therefore, a deep knowledge of both the material and the functional properties of hydrogel sensors and actuators is needed. The monograph describes state-of-the-art and recent developments for these materials in sensor and actuator technology. Part of the Advances in Industrial Control book series (AIC) Abstract The objective of this section is to provide an overview for the non-instrument engineer, of the role, operation and problems associated with the main sensors and actuators used in the control systems of the waste water treatment industry. Unlike other treatments of sensors or actuators, this book approaches the devices from the point of view of the fundamental coupling mechanism between the electrical and mechanical behaviour. It begins with a discussion of systems analysis as a tool for modelling transducers, before turning to a detailed discussion of transduction mechanisms.
