Table of contents

Charge transfer sensing

Hal Philipp

While the transference of charge is an essential aspect of every capacitance sensor, a relatively new form of sensor makes overt use of the principle of charge…

Spatially continuous six degree of freedom position and orientation sensor

Lee Danisch, Kevin Englehart, Andrew Trivett

This paper describes SHAPE TAPE™, a thin array of fiber optic curvature sensors laminated on a ribbon substrate, arranged to sense bend and twist. The resulting signals…

Real‐time 3‐D metrology for aerospace manufacture

Tim Clarke, Richard Gooch

High speed image processing is the basis of a unique 3‐D measurement system developed by British Aerospace and the City University Optical Metrology Centre. The system can…


Foresight launches three sensor programmes

Jack Hollingum

The government‐sponsored Foresight programme, begun four years ago with the aim of bringing together industrial companies with academic and research organisations to…

Sensor based safety components for high integrity machine control systems

Mike Hudson

Until recently there has been a problem integrating safety related sensors and other safety components with software based control systems for process plant and machinery…


Combining inorganic and organic gas sensors elements: a new approach for multi‐component sensing

G. Harsányi, M. Réczey, R. Dobay, I. Lepsényi, Zs. Illyefalvi‐Vitéz, J. Van den Steen, A. Vervaet, W. Reinert, J. Urbancik, A. Guljajev, Cs. Visy, Gy. Inzelt, I. Bársony

Atmospheric dependent, gas sensitive resistors seem to be good candidates for detecting critical air pollution levels. Recently, great progress has been made in the…


A multi‐agent architecture for intelligent building sensing and control

Sue Sharples, Vic Callaghan, Graham Clarke

We describe a new approach to intelligent building systems, that utilises an intelligent agent approach to autonomously governing the building environment. We discuss the…
