Labs for the Quanser QNET Mechatronic Sensors Board

Quanser QNET Mechatronic Sensors Board for NI ELVIS
This set of labs teach and demonstrate the fundamentals of interfacing with a variety of sensors commonly used in mechatronic systems, including pressure, flex, infrared, visible light, magnetism and temperature sensors; and techniques and limitations of their practical applications. Through theory and exercises, students will learn how to collect data from sensors, calibrate sensors, and use sensors to identify the natural frequency of material.
