How are Printed Force Sensing Resistors (FSR) Constructed?

Force sensors are piezoelectric transducers that convert input mechanical forces into electrical output signals. They can measure gravitational force (weight), compression, strain, and magnetic forces. These sensors fall into two main categories: load cells and force...

7 of the Most Inventive Applications for Ultrasonic Sensors

Ultrasonic sensors are amazing little devices. These sensors detect position, proximity, and fill level with pinpoint precision by using ultrasonic sound waves. They’ve already found their way into a huge array of uses; in fact, we’ve already written about clever...
