Distributed Sensor Systems
Practice and ApplicationseBook - 2012
In this book, the authors discuss the technological developmentslead by sensor technology, addressing viable new applications toinspire a technological evolution. Under the advanced and visionaryapproach of distributed intelligence, the authors focus on threedistinct but tightly inter-related areas of developments fordistributed sensing systems (DSS): firstly, the sensor technologyembracing the conversion of the phenomena of interest intodesirable form of signal such as electric, secondly, theinteraction process between sensing points which requires immenseintelligence loosely called networking, and finally, the adoptionof useful maturing systems through potential applications for rightimpacts for a better life and a brighter economy. Furthermore, thebook contains a number of case studies and typical applicationsillustrating the technical details, features and functions of thesystems, as well as demonstrating their benefits andlimitations.
Key Features:Discusses the technological developments lead by sensortechnology Addresses viable new applications Contains a number of case studies and typical applicationsillustrating the technical details, features and functions of thesystems Demonstrates the benefits and limitations of distributedsensing Written by experts with vast experience in the field (both inacademia and industry)
This book will be an invaluable reference for postgraduatesstudying related courses (communication engineering, engineeringmanagement, computer systems, industrial process, automation,design, environmental, urban, surveillance), R&D engineers,system and application designers, researchers, industrial projectmanagers and engineers, and technical and strategic managersplanning new products.
