The object of Sensor Models course is to introduce students to the terminologies and definitions in the area of sensors. The students will learn a series of applied and fundamental principles together with various examples from industrial applications. At the end of this course, the student should have applied knowledge on principles of sensing, and clearly describe the basic terminologies in the fields of physical principles of sensing, sensor characteristics, and basics of data acquisition.

- Introduction on sensors, definitions, human / natural sensors
- Physical principles of sensing, review of relevant physical effects, energy conversions
- Sensor characteristics, transfer function, models, sensitivity, calibration
- Sensor electronics
- Examples to: Strain, stress, pressure, temperature sensors, Optical sensors, light detectors, capacitive sensors, piezoelectric sensors, magnetic sensors, Biosensors
- State of the art example (industrial application)
