Overview of basic and advanced knowledge of sensors and extension by knowledge needed for design and development of sensor systems.
The content reflects perspective principles of sensors as well as methods of complex sensor signal conditioning and processing. Sensors and sensor systems are shown in specific applications, the design procedures are shown in case studies. Labs in the first part are focused on complex characterization of sensor parameters, in the second part on independent design using FEM modeling and experimental verification.
Knowlege of physics and of electrical measurements is welcome
