The goal of this tutorial is to cover the fundamental properties and applications of sensors used in precision engineering. This tutorial will cover important definitions and concepts needed for Precision applications. Because of the broad spectrum of sensors available the authors will focus on fundamentals and a manageable number of key sensor technologies that are common to precision applications. Sensor types that will be discussed include displacement, environmental, force and optical. Discussion will include basics of operation and some common precision applications.
Participants of this tutorial should have a basic understanding of signals and systems including some fundamentals of precision design. Material will be tailored to engineering professionals and students with basic knowledge of electronics and engineering.
