A Hands-On Course in Sensors the use of the Arduino and Raspberry Pi is the first book to provide a practical and wide-ranging account of the best way to interface sensors and actuators with micro-controllers, Raspberry Pi and other regulate systems. The writer describes the progression of raw signals through conditioning stages, digitization, data storage and presentation.
The collection, processing, and understanding of sensor data plays a central role in industrial and scientific activities. This book builds simplified models of large industrial or scientific installations that contain hardware and other building blocks, including services and products for databases, internet servers, regulate systems, and messaging brokers. A range of case studies are included inside the book, including a weather station, geophones, a water-colour monitor, capacitance measurement, the profile of laser beam, and a remote-controlled and fire-in search of robot
This book is suitable for advanced undergraduate and graduate students taking hands-on laboratory courses in physics and engineering. Hobbyists in robotics clubs and other enthusiasts can even find this book of interest.
