    Electronics How do sensors handle interference due to the reflected ray?

    I am unable to see how a sensor where the receiving and emitting instruments are next to one another deal with wave interference between the emitted and reflected wave.

    Sensor data in Deep Learning: questions on a simple level

    First of all: I am not a programmer, I cannot read code, only have a background in pure mathematics, am looking for a very simplified summary ("for Dummies") of the way Deep Learning and similar AI routines handle sensor data. I looked at a few articles such as...

    Use of 4 floating current sources

    Homework Statement I have 4 resistive sensors thus I need to tie 4 floating current sources. Floating current source will give me output voltage linear to the resistance of a sensor. I know it is not the best solution but it is good enough. Image provided: Homework Equations None The...

    Advice on Ultrasonic sensors?

    I am new to sensors and am looking for an ultrasonic sensor with a range up to 16-18 feet for very low costs (<$10). Most sensors I have found for this project are pricey relative to the cost I imagined. Are these type of sensors the best option if I am looking for low cost/long distance...

    What magnetic position sensor to choose?

    I want to record the displacement of a small magnetic ball moving sideways across the face of the sensor. I've had a close look at AMS's catalog of magnetic position sensors and I'm not sure how to choose one. If I'm working with a movement range of <5mm and want a resolution of 5-10μm, and...

    How to determine the range of sensitivity for a camera sensor?

    I am not sure if this is the best place to ask and I will change locations if need be, but I need some guidance on how to choose a proper sensor for my project. I am currently working as part of a team on a polarimetric camera for ocean imaging. The basic premise is that images, from above the...

    Difference between reverse bias and forward bias for a photodiode

    I'm creating a project where the motors have to be triggered by a photodiode. A light provides a steady stream of current to the photodiode and when that incident light is scattered, the motors move. But in reverse bias a photodiode needs to have a dark environment to provide 'infinite...

    How to interpret this circuit configuration? (Sensor bridge)

    So, I'm asked to demonstrate the formulas for finding out the voltage labeled here as ΔU, which I'm given in my project document: I think I would be able to make the demonstrations without any outside help, if only I knew how I'm supposed to interpret this circuit branch in the middle. Is it...

    How to Waterproof a Strain Gage?

    Hello all, Our project needs to implement a force (strain) gage underwater for one of our tests. Our budget is pretty tight and we can't afford a wash-down strain gage that can support the forces that we will be operating at (~500 lbs). Does anybody know a way to hermetically seal a strain...

    Luminous emittance vs value recorded on image sensor

    Assume that I have a light bulb with luminous emittance of 160000lux (16ev), and a gray wall with luminous emittance of 300lux (7ev). I take the photo of this bulb and this background. Is there any approximate formula to estimate the gray level or RGB value of the bulb and the background in the...

    Data Corruption from Sensors with Long Wires

    Hi all, Hopefully this is the right subforum. I have a question related to Arduino sensors. Q:Generally, when do you need to be worried about losing data from having long wires from your sensor to your Arduino board? Details:For example, I've been looking at two sensors. Sensor 1: MLX90614...

    Testing and Troubleshooting Capacitive Sensor Probes

    I am working on a system that uses capacitance sensor probes, the system components are the probe, triaxial cable with LEMO connectors, BNC cable, oscillator, and a demodulator. I have had some trouble finding ways to troubleshoot the system other then basically testing continuity. Are there any...
