    Today, at the low end of the communication protocols we find the inter-integrated circuit (I2C) and the serial peripheral interface (SPI) protocols. Both protocols are well suited for communications between integrated circuits for slow communication with on-board peripherals. The two protocols coexist in modern digital electronics systems, and they probably will continue to compete in the future, as both I2C and SPI are actually quite complementary for this kind of communication.

    Most of us would like to get rid of as many cords and cables as possible. Some have said that a goal for this decade is to replace them with wireless connections. In this article, the author discuss one of the ways of making a wireless communication link - the cellular modem. This paper describe an off-the-shelf solution to connectivity over the cellular network: the cellular engine terminal. View full abstract»

    This tutorial has focused on the importance of accurate measurement by flow meters in industrial applications and what is necessary to provide accuracy. The properties of fluid flow are discussed in relation to how these properties affect the measurement by flow meters. The diagrams, formulas and graphs illustrate the important factors in the use of volumetric, mass and smart flow meters. View full abstract»

    During the summer of 2008, I created a sensor survey and sent it to the IEEE I&M Society, the Sensors and Transducers Journal, and Sensorsmag.com. Conservatively, the appeal to respond to the survey went out to more than 50,000 people. My goal was to better understand how sensors are used and how they might be used within 5 years time. 468 people took the survey; of those 21 had not had any meaningful involvement with sensors within the past 5 years and this group did not answer any questions regarding sensors. The remaining 447 people, who were involved in developing or using sensors, took the survey; of that group, 168 responded to more questions about the sensors that they currently use.
