Some Types of Basic Sensors
Overview This Hackathon: Sensors Challenge is a brainstorming session organized to capture innovative ideas that can use sensor technology to creatively solve local and global issues and benefit the society in long-term. The focus is on sensor technology as the significance and application of sensors is rapidly growing in all areas of life. Sensors allow us to monitor our surroundings in ways we could barely imagine a few years ago. New sensor applications are being identified
everyday which broadens the scope of the technology and expands its impact on everyday life.
There are different types of sensors available to sense the environment. Some of the basic ones are listed below.
6. Flame Sensor
The participants are encouraged to brainstorm on: • Current local and global issues • Innovative ideas to tackle these issues • How sensors can help in solving these issues
9. LED Light Module
7. Gas Sensor 8. Infrared (IR)
4. Crash 12. Push Button 13. Proximity
Internet of things (IoT) encompasses evergrowing network of everyday physical objects being connected to the Internet and being able to communicate with other Internet-enabled devices and systems.
Need and Application of Sensors As we move into smarter world, where a lot of our everyday life is getting digitized and smarter, sensors will play a vital role in redefining how we interact with physical beings and machines and will significantly improve the world. With the rise of Internet of things, sensors are helping us into an efficient future where everything is connected and understands our need better. Sensors are now found in a wide variety of applications, such as smart mobile devices, automotive systems, industrial control, healthcare, oil exploration and climate monitoring. Sensors are used almost everywhere, and now sensor technology is beginning to closely mimic the ultimate sensing machine, the human
being. The technology that allows this to happen is sensor fusion, which leverages a micro-controller (a “brain”) to fuse the individual data collected from multiple sensors to get a more accurate and reliable view of the data than one would get by using the data from each discrete sensor on its own. The seed technologies are now being developed for long-term vision that includes intelligent systems that are selfmonitoring, self-correcting and repairing, and self-modifying or morphing not unlike sentient beings. Depending on the requirement, sensors can be simple as sensing temperature or very complex as to detecting radioactivity.
15. Sound Detector
A device that measures acceleration forces. They are used to detect and monitor vibration in rotating machinery and in drones for flight stabilization as well as are components of inertial navigation systems for aircraft and missiles. 2. Biometrics
A transducer that converts a biometric treat (fingerprint, voice, face, etc.) of a person into an electrical signal and are essential feature of identity technology. The sensor reads or measures pressure, temperature, light, speed, electrical capacity or other kinds of energies. These can be used in a high definition camera for facial recognition or in a microphone for voice capture. 3. Capacitive
LED modules consist of one or more single LEDs mounted on a rigid or flexible board (printed circuit board) in various geometrical arrangements.
A proximity sensor is a sensor able to detect the presence of nearby objects without any physical contact. It often emits an electromagnetic field or a beam of electromagnetic radiation (infrared, for instance), and looks for changes in the field or return signal. Different proximity sensor targets demand different sensors. For example, a capacitive or photoelectric sensor might be suitable for a plastic target; an inductive proximity sensor always requires a metal target.
11. Motion Sensor
9. LED Light Module
An image sensor or imaging sensor is a sensor that detects and conveys the information that constitutes an image. Image sensors are used in electronic imaging devices of both analog and digital types, which include digital cameras, camera modules, medical imaging equipment, night vision equipment such as thermal imaging devices, radar, sonar, and others. 11. Motion Sensor
7. Gas Sensor
Crash sensors measure variables such as wheel speed, brake pressure, occupant condition, and increase in pressure to determine if the car is indeed experiencing a crash. 5. Current
A device that detects electric current (AC or DC) in a wire, and generates a signal proportional to it. The generated signal could be analog voltage or current or even digital output. It can be then utilized to display the measured current in an ammeter or can be stored for further analysis in a data acquisition system or can be utilized for control purpose.
6. Flame Sensor
The Flame Sensor can be used to detect fire source or other light sources of the wavelength in the range of 760nm - 1100 nm. A flame detector can often respond faster and more accurately than a smoke or heat detector due to the mechanisms it uses to detect the flame. When used in applications such as industrial furnaces, their role is to provide confirmation that the furnace is properly lit.
Capacitive sensing is a technology, based on capacitive coupling, that can detect and measure anything that is conductive or has a dielectric different from air. It may be used in any place where low to no force human touch sensing is desirable and are used in sensors to detect and measure proximity, position or displacement, humidity, fluid level, and acceleration.
A device that detects the presence of gases in an area, often as part of a safety system. This type of equipment is used to detect a gas leak or other emissions and can interface with a control system so a process can be automatically shut down. Gas detectors can be used to detect combustible, flammable and toxic gases, and oxygen depletion.
A motion sensor (or motion detector) is the linchpin of your security system, because it’s the main device that detects when someone is in your home when they shouldn’t be. A motion sensor uses one or multiple technologies to detect movement in an area. If a sensor is tripped, a signal is sent to your security system’s control panel, which connects to your monitoring center, alerting you and the monitoring center to a potential threat in your home.
8. Infrared (IR)
12. Push Button
An infrared sensor is an electronic instrument which is used to sense certain characteristics of its surroundings by either emitting and/or detecting infrared radiation. Infrared sensors are also capable of measuring the heat being emitted by an object and detecting motion.
A push-button is a simple switch mechanism for controlling some aspect of a machine or a process. The push-button has been utilized in calculators, pushbutton telephones, kitchen appliances, and various other mechanical and electronic devices, home and commercial.
“A temperature sensor is a device, typically, a thermocouple or RTD, that provides for temperature measurement through an electrical signal. A thermocouple (T/C) is made from two dissimilar metals that generate electrical voltage in direct proportion to changes in temperature. Temperature detection is the foundation for all advanced forms of temperature control and compensation.” 15. Sound Detector
The Sound Detector is a small board that combines a microphone and some processing circuitry. It provides not only an audio output, but also a binary indication of the presence of sound, and an analog representation of it’s amplitude. Rather than recording, these sensors are used to detect the presence of sound in the environment. 16. Weather
Different weather elements can be sensed such as rain, air pressure, air quality which can be used for various applications. Recording weather to making smart systems based on weather can be designed based on these sensors.
