Sensors, Actuators, and Their Interfaces: A Multidisciplinary Introduction

Sensors and actuators are becoming increasingly important. While they had originally been associated mainly with industrial applications, they are now starting to have a much wider use, especially with many new applications being sought for the Internet of Things.

Sensors and actuators have many applications in electrical mechanical, chemical and biomedical applications. Here they can enables processes to be automated, or at least controlled remotely. This is particularly important when the action needs to made in a hazardous or difficult to reach location.

The book is at the level of an undergraduate text book. It introduces students to the principles and applications of sensors and actuators, crossing multiple disciplines including aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering.

The book is also a very useful reference for those practising their career but needing to know more about the basics of sensing and actuation and the publishers state that it is an ideal choice for industry training seminars.

Sensors, Actuators and their Interfaces takes on board the concept that a sensor system is made of three main components:

  • Inputs - these are the sensors

  • Actuators - these are the actuators

  • Processors - these are the areas where the inputs and outputs are linked and where the required processing is performed as well as containing the interfaces to input the data coming in and output the control information.

Important coverage is given to interfacing (the processes and mechanisms between the sensor and actuator) that make a system work reliably and accurately. The material is presented with clear explanations, examples and diagrams, making it ideal for students and practitioners concerned with systems engineering in a broad variety of fields, especially those that depend on sensors for detecting pre-determined conditions.

The book is aimed at what is termed the real world, and indeed it is full of practical examples and the reasons behind various approaches. As such the book has been designed to introduce students and practitioners to the principles and applications of sensors and actuators. Processing hardware and the embedded systems software that connects them is also address as this is an essential part of the overall sensor / actuator system.
