Nanotechnology: what are the prospects for sensors?

Robert W. Bogue

This paper aims to assess the impact of nanotechnology on sensors. Examples of recent nanosensor developments are given and future prospects are briefly considered.

Switches and pressure sensors benefit from novel composite material

Christine Connolly

A new material has been developed consisting of metal particles intimately distributed in a polymer. This composite becomes a conductor under compression, tension or…

A visual programming environment for machine vision engineers

Paul F. Whelan, Robert Sadleir

This paper details a free image analysis and software development environment for machine vision application development. The environment provides high‐level access to…

Flexural strain sensing using carbon nanotube film

Prasad Dharap, Zhiling Li, Satish Nagarajaiah, Enrique V. Barrera

Strain sensing characteristic of carbon nanotubes has been established in the past at nanoscale. In this study, it is shown that the carbon nanotube film sensors, made up…

A novel PVDF microforce/force rate sensor for practical applications in micromanipulation

Yantao Shen, Ning Xi, King W.C. Lai, Wen J. Li

This paper presents our development of a novel force and force rate sensory system to advance applications in micromanipulation using an in situ polyvinylidene fluoride…

A supported membrane type sensor for medical tactile mapping

Javad Dargahi, Siamak Najarian

This paper describes the design, fabrication, testing, and mathematical modeling of a supported membrane type polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) tactile sensor. Using the…

A stereo imaging system for the metric 3D recovery of porcine surface anatomy

Xiangyang Ju, J. Paul Siebert, Nigel J.B. McFarlane, Jiahua Wu, Robin D. Tillett, Charles Patrick Schofield

We have succeeded in capturing porcine 3D surface anatomy in vivo by developing a high‐resolution stereo imaging system. The system achieved accurate 3D shape recovery by…
