About this Book
Modern sensors working on new principles and/or using new materials and technologies are more precise, faster, smaller, use less power and are cheaper. Given these advantages, it is vitally important for system developers, system integrators and decision makers to be familiar with the principles and properties of the new sensor types in order to make a qualified decision about which sensor type to use in which system and what behavior may be expected. This type of information is very difficult to acquire from existing sources, a situation this book aims to address by providing detailed coverage on this topic.
In keeping with its practical theme, the discussion concentrates on sensor types used or having potential to be used in industrial applications.
