As sensors and actuators are normally not (and have not been) treated in academic curricula as a subject in its own right; many students and current professionals often find themselves limited in their knowledge and dealing with topics and issues based on material they may have never encountered. Until now. This book brings sensors, actuators and interfaces out of obscurity and integrates them for multiple disciplines including electrical, mechanical, chemical, and biomedical engineering. Real world cases, worked examples, and problem sets with selected answers provide both fundamental understanding and how industry develops sensor systems. Students and professionals from any of these disciplines will easily learn the foundational concepts and then be able to apply them to cross-discipline requirements. The idea is simple. A sensor system in general is made of three components: 1. Inputs (sensors) 2. Outputs (actuators) 3. Processor (the unit to which the inputs and outputs are connected and performs all, or the most, tasks needed to interface them) Sensors, Actuators, and their Interfaces focuses on the broad area of detection, outlining and simplifying the understanding of theory behind sensing and actuation. It is an invaluable textbook for undergraduate and graduate level courses, as well as a reference for professionals who were never afforded the opportunity to take an introductory course.

About the Author:

Nathan Ida is currently a Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Akron. He received his Bachelor and Master degrees from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Israel) and his Ph.D. from Colorado State University in 1983. Dr. Ida has written five successful books in electromagnetics including the undergraduate textbook Engineering Electromagnetics (now in its second edition). He teaches several courses at the University of Akron including a very popular course on sensors and actuators, which is the foundation of this book. He has researched and developed systems for industrial use that help control the thickness of rubber during tire production, oil leak sensing systems, wireless sensors and networks, and many other systems for several clients. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, ASNT (American Society for Nondestructive Testing), and ACES (Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society).

Book Description SciTech Publishing Inc, United States, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. This undergraduate textbook introduces students to the principles and applications of sensors and actuators, crossing multiple disciplines including aerospace, biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical engineering. An excellent professional reference for those needing to learn the basics of sensing and actuation, this book is a good choice for industry training seminars.This book "connects the dots" of theory and circuits basics into meaningful systems and real-world applications. Designed to introduce students and practitioners to the principles and applications of sensors and actuators, this book discusses processing hardware and the embedded systems software that connects them.It is written based on the theory that a system is made of three components: Inputs, Outputs and Processors and looks at sensors and actuators based on the broad area of detection. 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.Supplementary materials for professors are available via email to.
