Instrumentation and Sensors

 

 

Sensors are very important

 in the industrial world,

 to measure level in silos , for instance

 to detect meteorological conditions ,

 in your "driver" live , you use "human" sensors along the road,

 to preserve a 500-year-old Peruvian mummy ,

 to determine the kinematics of the Mars Pathfinder Lander ,

 to measure human life parameters ,

 …

But, in order to use the right sensor for the right application, some knowledge should be acquired ; it's the aim of this Metrology sub-package…

To know

 what a sensor is,

 what are its qualities,

 what are (sources of) measurement errors,

 how some of them work,

 

in order to use it in the best conditions and

to verify if you acquire good knowlege about sensors terminology
