Linear and rotational sensors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

By far the most common motions in mechanical systems are linear translation along a fixed axis and angular rotation about a fixed axis. More complex motions are usually accomplished by composing these simpler motions. In this chapter we provide a summary of some of the many technologies available for sensing linear and rotational motion along a single axis. We have arranged the sensing modalities according to the physical effect exploited to provide the measurement.
