This evolving field of endeavor is extraordinarily broad with nearly every scientific and technical discipline playing an important role. Thus, it should not be surprising that there is no unanimous concept of a sensor.
Given the impossibility of presenting a universally accepted definition for sensors, the committee used terms and definitions that are generally accepted in the current technical literature to provide the basis for discussion in this report.
The terms "sensor" and "transducer" have often been used as synonyms.
An output is defined as an "electrical quantity," and a measurand is ''a physical quantity, property, or condition which is measured. Therefore, the term "sensor" will be used throughout this report. The committee recognizes that, for the purpose of this report, the output of a sensor may be any form of energy. Many early sensors converted by transduction a physical measurand to mechanical energy; for example, pneumatic energy was used for fluid controls and mechanical energy for kinematic control.
This need for electrical interfacing is causing a broadening in the definition of a sensor to include the systems interface and signal conditioning features that form an integral part of the sensing system. With progress in optical computing and information processing, a new class of sensors, which involve the transduction of energy into an optical form, is likely. Also, sensors based on microelectromechanical systems may enable fluidic elements to operate as controls and actuation devices in the future.
Thus the definition of a "sensor" will continue to evolve. The definition of a sensor does not precisely define what physical elements constitute the sensor. For example, what portion of a thermocouple is the sensor? This second edition provides a thorough revision of the first and includes new worked examples, new applications, and thoroughly updated as well as entirely new material.
A new chapter on estimation from measurements, which includes various practical procedures and applications of estimation through sensed data New material on microelectromechanical systems MEMS New material on multisensor data fusion New material on networked sensing and localization Many new problems and worked examples Chapter highlights and summary sheets, for easy reference and recollection.
Sensors and Actuators: Engineering System Instrumentation, Second Edition provides users from a variety of engineering backgrounds with a complete overview of engineering system components for instrumentation. It presents current techniques, advanced theory and concepts, and addresses relevant design issues, component selection, and practical applications.
Probability and Statistics B: Clarence W. He has published and edited numerous books, chapters, journal articles, and conference papers. The content is uniquely both broad and focused providing the opportunity to explore a wide range of different aspects of engineering instrumentation and applications in detail.
However, more impressive still is the exceptional presentation clarity of the material which covers the full range of engineering interests from analytical fundamentals, modeling approaches, component selection methods and design techniques.
Included are extensive examples and case studies highlighting the practical application of basic concepts, analysis tools and design strategies. I switched the textbook for the course to first edition of this book when it first became available, because I and my faculty colleagues felt it was crucial that our instrumentation course cover "the whole picture" of instrumentation, including actuators and impedance matching and signal conditioning issues.
And I look forward, now, to working, likewise, with this, the second edition of the book. Thank you! Berg, Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Washington "This book provides an excellent introduction for bachelor students into the design of complex systems containing multiple sensors and actuators.
The illustrative examples and problems help students to quickly grasp the fundamental concepts and to see the trade-offs in the system design process. The book offers an excellent basis for designing a course on sensors and actuators. You will be prompted to fill out a registration form which will be verified by one of our sales reps.
