1. Sensors

Sensorwiki is a website where we can get many sensor information. The following list of sensor refers to the information on this website.

For the purposes of physical interaction design, a sensor is a transducer that converts a form of energy into an electrical signal.

Acceleration

  • Accelerometer

Biosignals

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Electroencephalogram (EEG)
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Electrooculography (EOG)
  • Electropalatography (EPG)
  • Galvanic Skin Response (GSR)

Distance

  • Capacitive
  • Hall Effect
  • Infrared
  • Ultrasound

Flow

  • Ultrasound

Force/pressure/strain/bend

  • Air Pressure
  • Fibre Optic Sensors
  • Flexion
  • Force-sensitive Resistor (FSR)
  • Load Cell
  • LuSense CPS² 155
  • Miniature Pressure Transducer
  • Piezoelectric Ceramic & Film
  • Strain Gage

Humidity

  • Hygrometer

Linear position

  • Hall Effect
  • Linear Position (Touch)
  • Linear Potentiometer (Slider)
  • Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT)
  • LuSense CPS² 155

Orientation/inclination

  • Accelerometer
  • Inclinometer
  • Magnetometers

Radio Frequency

  • Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)

Rotary position

  • Rotary Encoder
  • Rotary Potentiometer

Rotary velocity

  • Gyroscope

Switches

  • On-Off Switch

Temperature

  • Temperature

Vibration

  • Piezoelectric Ceramic & Film

Visible light intensity

  • Fibre Optic Sensors
  • Light-Dependent Resistor (LDR)

2. Outputs

There’re lots of types of outputs we can use. For example:

  • LED
  • Speaker
  • Screen
  • Piezo
  • Motor
  • Heat
  • …….

 

By the way, in this class we also discussed about our final project idea and I would use a Ultrasonic sensor.
