UK Technology Foresight – sensors strategy for 2015

Peter McGeehin

Summarises the report of a Sensors Task Force which was formed as part of the UK Technology Foresight exercise. Examines the various markets for sensor technology, both…

Smart sensors

Paul G. Ranky

The purpose of developing smart (analog and digital) sensors for networked machine/process monitoring, and other tasks, is to make them as easy and trouble free to deploy…

Innovative thin‐film pressure mapping sensors

Michael Hunston

A novel approach is presented for measuring contact pressure across a defined area using thin Mylar film sensors. The design and benefits from the use of such technology…

Thin flexible pressure sensors

C.M.A. Ashruf

This article gives an overview on the currently available techniques for the measurement of interface pressure or force between (soft) objects. These techniques make use…

Efficient sensor system for online contour tracking in textile machinery

Joerg Stephan

The apparel industry in high wage countries can only be competitive globally by rationalizing its production process with automation. A particular stress is to be laid on…

Thermistors – in search of new applications, manufacturers cultivate advanced NTC techniques

Rajanish K. Kamat, Gourish M. Naik

As leading sensors of ambient conditions, temperature sensors act as important sensing devices. They are essential in a large variety of products. A variety of temperature…

Laser probe design for carbon content in ash measurement

Abdel K. Ouazzane, Redha Benhadj

The polarisation ratio of the linearly polarised light backscattered by fly ash particles is indicative of the carbon content. The determination of this parameter is…
