Handbook of Modern Sensors: Physics, Designs, and Applications
Handbook of Modern Sensors: Physics, Designs, and
This book presents a comprehensive and up-to-date account of the theory (physical principles), design, and practical implementations of various sensors for scientific, industrial, and consumer applications. This latest edition focuses on the sensing technologies driven by the expanding use of sensors in mobile devices. These new miniature sensors will be described, with an emphasis on smart sensors which have embedded processing systems. The chapter on chemical sensors has also been expanded to present the latest developments.Digital systems, however complex and intelligent they may be, must receive information from the outside world that is generally analog and not electrical. Sensors are interface devices between various physical values and the electronic circuits that "understand" only a language of moving electrical charges. In other words, sensors are the eyes, ears, and noses of silicon chips.Unlike other books on sensors, the Handbook of Modern Sensors is organized according to the measured variables (temperature, pressure, position, etc.). This book is a reference text for students, researchers interested in modern instrumentation (applied physicists and engineers), sensor designers, application engineers and technicians whose job it is to understand, select and/or desi...

Accessory to War: The Unspoken Alliance Between Astrophysics and the Military
Accessory to War: The Unspoken Alliance Between Astrophysics
An exploration of the age-old complicity between skywatchers and warfighters, from the best-selling author of Astrophysics for People in a Hurry.In this fascinating foray into the centuries-old relationship between science and military power, acclaimed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and writer-researcher Avis Lang examine how the methods and tools of astrophysics have been enlisted in the service of war. "The overlap is strong, and the knowledge flows in both directions," say the authors, because astrophysicists and military planners care about many of the same things: multi-spectral detection, ranging, tracking, imaging, high ground, nuclear fusion, and access to space. Tyson and Lang call it a "curiously complicit" alliance. "The universe is both the ultimate frontier and the highest of high grounds," they write. "Shared by both space scientists and space warriors, it’s a laboratory for one and a battlefield for the other. The explorer wants to understand it; the soldier wants to dominate it. But without the right technology—which is more or less the same technology for both parties—nobody can get to it, operate in it, scrutinize it, dominate it, or use it to their advantage and someone else’s disadvantage."Spanning early celestial navigation to satellite-enabled wa...

Exploring multi-touch interaction: An overview of the history, HCI issues and sensor technology of multi-touch appliances
Exploring multi-touch interaction: An overview of the history,
The work establishes a departure point for HCI researchers to explore the rich opportunities offered by multi-touch interaction. The viability of multi-touch interaction as a technique in HCI is outlined by discussing the role of touch surfaces from the perspective of current trends in HCI such as experiential design and user-centric approaches, as well as by drawing a link to established theoretical frameworks such as activity theory. A summary of the state of the art of multi-touch research is presented with a focus both on aspects of hardware sensor and software technology as well as proposed interaction paradigms and metaphors. In order to enable the exploration of multi-touch interaction on large surfaces and screens, simple camera-based hardware setups suitable for assembly without a technological background are presented with the goal of providing designers with a prototyping platform for their endeavors. Finally, Touché is introduced, a vision-based tracking application for use in conjunction with the aforementioned self-assembled hardware, providing designers with both hardware and software technologies to explore multi-touch interaction on affordable setups.
