Learn how integrated sensors and associated software packages dramatically simplify the implementation of sensor fusion for orientation-aware designs.
Autonomous vehicles rely on real-time RF-based position data. Good design incorporates backup sensor systems that enhance accuracy and take over if RF is lost.
This article discusses low cost, mass produced MEMS gyroscopic sensors and the various micromachining technologies that are opening up a range of new applications.
This article looks at the different types of accelerometers used for industrial applications, ranging from the latest micro-machined capacitive devices to traditional rugged piezo electric crystals.
Serial sensors and subsystems and some of the development and evaluation kits available to support them are discussed.
The sensors located in the tips of our fingers are not only touching receptors, they are all-in-one pressure sensors, shape sensors, temperature sensors, and liquid-viscosity sensors as well.
There is hardly a consumer product today that does not have one or more wireless interfaces. Cell phones typically add Wi-Fi and Bluetooth® radios.
Android devices are now part of the array of gadgets offering sensor-based capabilities that let developers do everything.
Sensor fusion is the combining of sensory data derived from a variety of sensors collecting information.
The global robot population is growing rapidly, and with it the demand for the sensors and systems that enable these machines to work in increasingly complex environments.
Used in applications spanning fluid/gas flow, speed, level and altitude, pressure sensors typically measure the pressure of gas or liquid within a specific environment.
There are a number of factors that have led to rapid advances in accelerometer technology. First and foremost is the expanding market for such devices.
Those who use global-positioning systems (GPS) appreciate the value of GPS, while accepting its shortcomings.
Some of the most amazing features integrated in today's mobile consumer electronics devices are thanks to accelerometers.
