Fundamentals of Mechatronic Sensors

The accurate and reliable measurement of physical quantities allows engineers to reliably monitor and control processes. Therefore, having an in-depth understanding of sensors is required to design, implement, and maintain complex mechatronic systems. This lab manual provides students with hands-on experience to measure, calibrate, and analyze the following common physical properties/phenomena: angular displacement, distance, strain, temperature, pressure, contact, and pose. The skills and hands-on experiences gained using the Sensors board are directly aligned and applicable to the challenges engineers face creating the complex systems that dominate the world today.
