Low-cost, high-value sensor options are available for revolutions-per-minute (RPM) measurement applications. Most of these sensors provide simple, reliable and inexpensive transducers for highly sophisticated control systems. Take a look at different types of tachometers for RPM measurement, advanced sensor...
Sensors have revolutionized the life around us. Sensing has enabled industrial advances, such as the technology involved in building and factory automation. The recent advancement in sensor technology has made a massive impact in the personal electronics and medical...
Presented here is a sensitive alarm using a vibration sensor for application as a simple surveillance system for protecting doors and windows. It can also be used as a luggage or locker protector. The circuit beeps and lights a...
Surveillance is an important aspect in security, especially with places like banks, jewellery shops and the like. Nowadays even small hotels and bakeries use surveillance systems to protect their properties. Currently there are two types of surveillance system available. ...
Here is a simple optoreflective sensor circuit based on TCRT5000 module. It is ideal for projects like robotics, position sensing, proximity sensing, detection of reflective materials and many more. Its range is 2mm to 10mm, and the best response...
Modern electronic systems use sensors to monitor parameters like temperature and provide protection from excessive temperature excursions with good accuracies, reasonable costs and often with low power consumption. For instance, expensive laptops with densely-packed circuits dissipate considerable power in...
The Internet of Things (IoT) already influences all the industries in the world. Wireless sensor networks as an enabling technology for IoT therefore becomes used in virtually all areas. Fraunhofer IIS is one among the world’s leading institute on...
Residential fires have become a significant problem throughout the country. Fire officials estimate that at least fifty per cent of lives that are lost due to residential fires could be saved by installing early-warning fire-detection devices. The purpose of...
Convergence of physical and virtual worlds has created new opportunities across industry segments. How have these sensors evolved? Krishnananda Shenoy, AVP and principal architect, engineering services, Infosys, speaks with Dilin Anand from EFY Q. What broad advances are enabling...
ROHM has recently announced the availability of the SENSORSHLD1-EVK-101, a second-generation sensor shield integrating 10 onboard sensors along with standard Arduino interface pins that ensure compatibility with existing open-source prototyping platforms. In recent years, following the proliferation of IoT and...
