    In mid-February, the IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Magazine was evaluated by the IEEE. The magazine is reviewed every five years, and the review involves researching and writing a report about the magazine and meeting with the group that evaluates the society's publications. It is also a time for those of us who work on the magazine to reflect upon the state of the magazine. As part of our ... View full abstract»

    The Kalman filter is one of the most widely applied tools in the statistical signal processing field, especially in the context of causal online applications [1]. This article presents an introduction to the Kalman filter; the desired signal and its corresponding measurements are modeled, the Kalman filter is formulated and presented with an intuitive explanation of the involved equations, applica...

    This is the final part of a three-part series on micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) sensor technology. In the first part, a general introduction to MEMS sensing was given including the underlying principles [1]. Biomedical MEMS sensors were described and the principles of bio-sensing in a typical set of biologically inspired sensors were presented. The second part discussed mechanical sensors ...

    In this sequel, I examine power transmission and consider some of the equipment and instruments. Transmission equipment starts with towers, pylons, conductors, accessories, such as insulators, connectors, and splicers, and I discuss their importance. Special attention is given to the voltage limiting effects of corona discharges. The pros and contras of power transmission with alternating current ... View full abstract»

    Modern cellular wireless systems would not be possible without high-performance equalizers. Signal impairments introduced by the wireless channel can only be compensated for by using such equalizers. This tutorial serves as an introduction to the challenging design of equalizers. By introducing a general framework based on the Bezout Theorem, we show that the most sophisticated equalizer concepts ... View full abstract»

    This article is the second part of a two-part series discussing pulse metrology. One who is doing pulse measurement needs to know what has been measured, to what accuracy, and with what uncertainty. Part 1 introduced the field of metrology and began an explanation of standards in pulse metrology and some of the commonly used pulse terms [1]. View full abstract»

    In 2009, the Instrumentation and Measurement Society's International Instrumentation and Measurement Technology Conference used the slogan, "Yes, We Measure," a paraphrase of the famous quote from Lord Kelvin. But what does "to measure" actually mean? This question has been asked many times, and there are perhaps hundreds of definitions. Attempting to answer that question yet again might sound rid...

    Would it be okay if I refer to mass as a weighty subject? And if I should do such a thing, would it give me gravitas? Well, weight and gravitas are much in the news these days, although weight seems to show up mainly in health stories and gravitas dominates the political scene. So let me be perfectly clear. Today, I want to discuss mass, weight, and gravity (the English equivalent of the Latin ??g... View full abstract»
