Universal frequency‐to‐digital converter for quasi‐digital and smart sensors: specifications and applications

Sergey Y. Yurish, Nikolay V. Kirianaki, Ramon Pallàs‐Areny

To provide detailed information about the novel universal frequency‐to‐digital converter UFDC‐1, which can help engineers and researchers to design new digital sensors and…

High‐speed cameras and laser Doppler vibrometers

Christine Connolly

To present two non‐contact methods of measuring vibrations and impact events.

LIBS range extended through the use of a transportable terawatt laser system

Robert Bogue

This article provides details of recent research in France and Germany which has extended the operational range of the laser‐induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS…

Structural integrity monitoring with fibre Bragg grating sensors

Robert Bogue

This paper describes a recent collaborative project involving the development of a multiplexed fibre Bragg grating (FBG) sensor system for structural integrity monitoring.

Similarity‐based modeling of vibration features for fault detection and identification

Stephan Wegerich

To provide an overview of the similarity‐based modeling (SBM) technology and review its application to condition monitoring of rotating equipment using features calculated…

Chance discovery of terahertz waveguides by US research group

Robert Bogue

This paper describes the discovery of waveguides capable of transmitting electromagnetic radiation at terahertz (THz) frequencies. Until now this has not been possible…

Computer screen pointer using intelligent colour sensing systems

S.D. Urwin‐Wright, D.A. Sanders, G.E. Tewkesbury

A novel sensor system is described that can replace the need to use a touch screen, mouse or keyboard for use with either a thin film transistor (TFT) or cathode ray tube…

Tracking and characterizing knocks atop large interactive displays

Joseph A. Paradiso, Che King Leo

To describe the development of and experience with a system that tracks the position of knocks and taps atop a large sheet of glass for use as an inexpensive retrofit that…

Metallic resonant strain gauges with high overload capability

T. Yan, B.E. Jones, R.T. Rakowski, M.J. Tudor, S.P. Beeby, N.M. White

This paper reports on a novel load cell and a novel torque transducer having stiffness and potential overload capability some ten times that of existing load cells and…

3D model‐based free‐form object recognition – a review

Ajmal Saeed Mian, Mohammed Bennamoun, Robyn Owens

In model‐based recognition the 3D models of objects are stored in a model library during an offline phase. During the online recognition phase, a view of the scene is…

On the design and implementation of an instrumented grinding testbed

Eric R. Marsh, Byron R. Knapp

The need for an instrumented grinding system that addresses the requirements of ductile regime machining of brittle materials is implemented. The static and dynamic…
