    Micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) use microminiature sensors and actuators. MEMS technology provides the benefits of small size, low weight, high performance, easy mass-production and low cost. This article is the first part of a three-part series on MEMS sensors. In the present article, we provide a general introduction to MEMS sensing and the primary sensing techniques. Next, MEMS-based bio... View full abstract»

    Semiconductor-based sensors are widely used for applications in detection of particular gases and liquids, fire detection, liquid quality monitoring, biosensing and medical sensing. As an example, our group has installed hydrogen sensors at a car dealership in Orlando, FL, USA, that houses a fleet of hydrogen-fuelled buses. These sensors are platinum (Pt)-coated aluminum gallium nitride (AlGaN) or... View full abstract»

    Wireless systems are a part of our personal lives. Why are the benefits of wireless not yet realized in our working lives? Is it because the benefits of doing away with wires are somehow less compelling in industrial applications than in our homes? No, if anything, the benefits are more compelling in industrial applications. I believe it is because practical wireless sensors are not yet widely ava... View full abstract»

    This article covers the latest research concerning the measurement of physiological signals of children with autism, particularly for the study of changing emotions in various environments. Answers to important questions regarding autistic children's physiological activity are examined, and we will see that within a non-social environment, physiological responses are the same between children with...

    This tutorial is the second of a two-part series on the challenges of installing instrumentation outside in the wild. The variety of physical, chemical, and biological assaults that can occur is quite amazing. The first part introduced problems with physical extremes and attacks by insects, animals, and human beings. In this part, we follow up with solutions for: environment-appropriate packaging;...

    Though mathematical theorems do not have exceptions, sometimes it is possible to "sneak around" the hypotheses of the theorems and achieve things that seem to be impossible. The Nyquist sampling theorem is a case in point. The theorem seems to sav that if vou have a low-pass signal, then you need to sample the signal at a rate that is more than twice the highest frequency in the signal. In fact, t...

    Before the invention of atomic clocks, the second was defined by dividing the period of an astronomical event into a shorter time interval. For example, the second was once defined by dividing the average period of one revolution of the Earth on its axis. The mean solar second was equal to 1/86,400 of the mean solar day. To create a more stable unit of time interval, the second was redefined in 19... View full abstract»
