Position Sensing: Angle and Distance Measurement for Engineers focuses on the electrical measurement of angles and distances. The publication first elaborates on industrial principles and sensors and measurement systems. Discussions focus on measurement technology, terms used in information technology, methods of measurement, analogue angle and displacement sensors, features of processes using a digital-incremental measurement base, electromechanical position sensing systems, and capacitive scanning. Carrier frequency scanning, electromagnetic pulse generator, photoelectric position sensing systems, distance measurement by the pulse-time delay method, laser gyroscope, and systems with analogue measurement and subsequent analogue-to-digital conversion are also discussed. The manuscript then examines intelligent sensors and connection of measurement systems. Topics cover electrical couplings for fine and coarse measurement systems, mechanical links for converting longitudinal to angular motion, general properties of intelligent sensors, and interconnection of intelligent sensors. The text is highly recommended for mechanical engineers and measurement and control technicians.

The discipline of instrumentation has grown appreciably in recent years because of advances in sensor technology and in the interconnectivity of sensors, computers and control systems. This 4e of the Instrumentation Reference Book embraces the equipment and systems used to detect, track and store data related to physical, chemical, electrical, thermal and mechanical properties of materials, systems and operations. While traditionally a key area within mechanical and industrial engineering, understanding this greater and more complex use of sensing and monitoring controls and systems is essential for a wide variety of engineering areas--from manufacturing to chemical processing to aerospace operations to even the everyday automobile. In turn, this has meant that the automation of manufacturing, process industries, and even building and infrastructure construction has been improved dramatically. And now with remote wireless instrumentation, heretofore inaccessible or widely dispersed operations and procedures can be automatically monitored and controlled. This already well-established reference work will reflect these dramatic changes with improved and expanded coverage of the traditional domains of instrumentation as well as the cutting-edge areas of digital integration of complex sensor/control systems. Thoroughly revised, with up-to-date coverage of wireless sensors and systems, as well as nanotechnologies role in the evolution of sensor technology Latest information on new sensor equipment, new measurement standards, and new software for embedded control systems, networking and automated control Three entirely new sections on Controllers, Actuators and Final Control Elements; Manufacturing Execution Systems; and Automation Knowledge Base Up-dated and expanded references and critical standards

This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 15th International Conference on Intelligent Data Engineering and Automated Learning, IDEAL 2014, held in Salamanca, Spain, in September 2014. The 60 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from about 120 submissions. These papers provided a valuable collection of recent research outcomes in data engineering and automated learning, from methodologies, frameworks, and techniques to applications. In addition the conference provided a good sample of current topics from methodologies, frameworks, and techniques to applications and case studies. The techniques include computational intelligence, big data analytics, social media techniques, multi-objective optimization, regression, classification, clustering, biological data processing, text processing, and image/video analysis.
