The benefits of soft sensor and multi-rate control for the implementation of wireless networked control systems
(Mdpi Ag, 2014-12-01)
Recent advances in wireless networking technology and the proliferation of industrial wireless sensors have led to an increasing interest in using wireless networks for closed loop control. The main advantages of Wireless ...
A strain gauge tactile sensor for finger-mounted applications
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2002-02-01)
This paper describes a strain gauge-based sensor used for measuring finger force. The theory, design, and sensor construction details are presented. It was constructed using metallic strain gauges and a carefully designed ...
Localized ant colony of robots for redeployment in wireless sensor networks
(Old City PublishingPhiladelphia, 2014)
Sensor failures or oversupply in wireless sensor networks (WSNs), especially initial random deployment, create spare sensors (whose area is fully covered by other sensors) and sensing holes. We envision a team of robots ...
Sensor Fusion with Low-Grade Inertial Sensors and Odometer to Estimate Geodetic Coordinates in Environments without GPS Signal
This paper presents a sensor fusion algorithm based on a Kalman Filter to estimate geodetic coordinates and reconstruct a car test trajectory in environments where there is no GPS signal. The sensor fusion algorithm is ...
Measuring air pressure with a polymeric gas sensor
(Sociedade Brasileira de Química, 2010)
In this communication we describe the application of a conductive polymer gas sensor as an air pressure sensor. The device consists of a thin doped poly(4'-hexyloxy-2,5-biphenylene ethylene) (PHBPE) film deposited on an ...
Development of friction-induced triboluminescent sensor for load monitoring
Real-time load monitoring of critical civil and mechanical structures especially dynamic structures such as wind turbine blades is imperative for longer service life. This article proposed a novel sensor system based on ...
