ELEC 344: Sensors and Actuators


Units: 3.75

This course provides an introduction to sensing and actuation in mechatronic systems. The topics include physical principles for the measurement and sensing of displacement, motion, force, torque, pressure, flow, humidity, radiation (visible and IR) and temperature using analog and digital transducers; actuating principles using continuous drive actuators, stepper motors, optical encoders and servo motors; and methods for signal collection, conditioning and analysis.
