Thank you Randy and Chuck

@Chuck: Can we discuss someday a development of biosensors?

Very interesting session! smart - yesterday, intelligent - today, super intelligent - tomorrow.

Smart sensor - means sensor with activity in it to indicate its good or bad state via some communication protocol.

Interesting that on this week I dont see historical tracking as a feature of what is considered smart in sensor technology

Reviewing the week late again

@Chuck - integrated with mcu (and n/w interface)

Iron

@Chuck - not familiar with IEEE 1451

Iron

Great to have access to the recorded sessions...

Iron

Missed the live lecture...

Iron

Thanks Randy and Chuck. Today was interesting and can't wait for the next two sessions.

Iron

have not designed any products using smart sensors.

Iron

"smart sensor" to me means something that has advanced features such as self calibration, signal processing or built-in tests. usually "smart" means integrated uC of some kind.

Iron

not aware of IEEE 1451 until today's session.

Iron

designed sensor apps for temp, voltage, curent, presure, humidity, ligh monitoring.

Iron

interested in sensor compensation, linearization, calibration and self disgnostics

Iron

I suggest " Industrial Control" as another topic

Iron

Thanks Randy; another excellent presentation.

Iron

Are smart sensors multisensing?

Iron

If I well understand, Smart sensor is a combination of sensor and actuator. Do I have a good understanding?

Iron

On slide 17, what does CMC stand for? Is it a memory?

Iron

Missed the live presentation but followed the archived one. Another excellent webinar! Thank you Randy and Chuck!

Iron

Gettting down to basics.

Iron

smart sensors are coming every where.

Iron

This is really Good Stuff!

Way to go.

Iron

Really good... thanks Randy

 

Iron

thanks audio cut off on live recorded fine thanks looking foward to buy book need the mcu parts thanks

Iron

Thanks Randy. Great series so far

Iron

It looks like that is going to do it for today.

Thanks, everyone.

@Chuck: I wrote an I2C/SMBus interface to a smart battery, which had a TI chipset for command/status info.  It integrated sensors for temperature, voltage, current, as well as higher level status like State of Charge (integration of the charge/discharge status).

Iron

@Chuck: no smart sensors, just dumb sensors to which we add some smarts (generally the lower "rungs" of the "ladder" that Randy showed in his slides).

Iron

I like the presentation, but the audio cuts off many times.

I'm told that the audio dropped out for many of you late in the session. For anyone who's interested, I'd like to repeat a question I asked at that time: Have you designed products that use smart sensors and, if so, what kinds of products were they? Thanks.

Blogger

Possible topic; industrial and automotive motor control

Iron

Thank You, good session

Iron

by plug and play, does this mean the sensor output would be the same from device to device.

 

That was the intent. A user could replace one sensor with another from the same or even a different manufacturer and the sensor had data regarding its calibration and other aspects that would have prevented it from being used in a system without additional effort from a knowledgible user. Industrial applications were the initial target of 1451.

Blogger

battery 'fuel gauge' and charging

Iron

A session on "Sensor Compensation" ie. Calibration, Linearization, Signal Integrity and Disgnostics as per the Microchip slide from todays deck.

Iron

Would like to know more on how they control and measure Li-Ion battery on EV vehicles.

 

Iron

@Chuck: I think a case study of the development of a smart sensor from concept (including the physics of the base sensor), through the design trades, to manufacturability issues, to deployment, would be interesting and helpful. This would perhaps some of the "hands on" flavor of Carol Lenk's latest LED session, or along the lines of some of Clive Maxfield's sessions such as the telescoped history of electronics he did for us a while back.

Iron

Good information today Randy, looking forward to tomorrow.

Iron

Topic:  Batteries & monitoring and charging.

embedded development for sensors. What is the best solution?

 

Gold

Possible sensor topic: signal conditioning, using 16 bit and higher A/D converters

Iron

energy harvesting....is the coolest thing...

Iron

@Randy & @Chuck- Thanks for the presentation.

Iron

Thank you for today's lecture Randy

Iron

For future subjects, what agout sensors/actuators integration?

Iron

Maybe a few tutorials on things to watch out for when integrating analogue to digital.

 

Iron

@chuck-  More information on what sensors are available and some insite one what types of sensors may be under development.

Iron

More on wireless mesh networks.

dedicated session for harvesting transducers

 

Iron

Thanks Randy and Chuck.

 

Iron

I look forward to energy harvesting tomorrow.

Iron

@rruther2: On my audio widget, it is the red triangle on the left end (in the leftmost box) of the widget. When you are actually listening, it is replacing by two vertical lines, presumably indicating Pause.

Iron

Thkx Randy, hope to hear you tomorrow.

Iron

Thank you Randy, Hear you tomorrow...

Iron

The JW Player 5.6.1768 need IE to Temporarly Allow Popups.

 

Iron

Smart = $

Intelligent = $$

There is a danger that "Green" products are under the control of someone "who knows better" and will switch off thing you might rely on.

Iron

Green is so overused.

Iron

Refreshed twice and it came back.

Iron

Hmmm... the Blog Talk Radio widget paused itself. I pressed the Play button on its left end and voila! I have audio again. Same here.

re push the play button on the media player strip works now

Iron

ditto to the audio dropout using chrome

Iron

refresh + press play fixed it...

Iron

keeps dropping out here also.  have to refresh browser to get it going again, repeatedly

Audio back after refresh.  Thanks.

Iron

refresh and press play again

 

Iron

Note that I did not need to refresh the page to recover. I just pressed the play button on the widget.

Iron

same here, refreshed page and it came back

Hmmm... the Blog Talk Radio widget paused itself. I pressed the Play button on its left end and voila! I have audio again.

Iron

Audio dissapeared.

 

Iron

Reload web page: audio resumes.

 

Iron

push play and it is back on

 

Iron

Thye audio is lost!

 

Iron

Re-poke the webpage

 

Iron

just lost audio here too

 

Iron

AUDIO SHOT WILL LISTEN TO RECORED ONE

Iron

Signing out ... audio is shot.  Thanks, Randy, we'll check in tomorrow.

have you looked at the Freescale Xtrinsic sensors?

Smart sensor: plug & play, self calibrating, configurable

Iron

 

http://www.sensorsportal.com/HTML/SENSORS/TEDS_SensManuf.htm

 

Blogger

@chuck, plug and play, swappable with autoconfiguration, network accessible

Iron

I thinka "smart" anything should be aware of being connected to a network and BIT, self-cal, accepting commands and outputting data without human intervention - "plug'n'play".

Iron

mine isnt too bad with cracking but it does stop and start, but no lag.

Iron

A smart sensor simply learns information over time, or has that learned data available to make desicions .

Platinum

Q. What makes the "smart sensor" smart question smert...

A. connectivity.

Iron

network health, packet health, self routing mesh network ability

.

Iron

A compensated sensor with digital communications capability.

Iron

Same definition as was given.

 

Iron

hit refresh on your browser

Sound breaking up - even with Chrome

 

Iron

AUDIO KEEPS STOPPING HAVE FLASH PLAYER WILL VIEW ACHIVED

Iron

Late, but hi to everyone

Iron

Any idea on the cost of the standards?

 

Iron

Load cells from Transducer Techniques use TEDS; saves me a lot of aggravation because it automatically scales the readout.  I just plug in whichever load cell I'm using and the display and RS-232 output read directly in pounds with whatever resolution I selected previously.

Iron

accelerometers interfaced with NI cRIO module

we have our own AGH-7500 hydrophone which is a TEDS device - electronic data sheet shows capacitance / frequency response / calibration date / etc. 

 

I haven't encountered any.

Iron

IEEE 1451 is new to me.

Iron

Yes,  wireless eKo Nodes used in agricultural field environment monitoring via web based hosts.

Iron

No.  First time being aware of such a specification.

Iron

@chuck,  no, haven't heard of this standard

Iron

by plug and play, does this mean the sensor output would be the same from device to device.

Iron

teouble with the audio.  it keeps stopping.
