Technical Committees

Dive in a technical committee

The taxonomy of the Chapter is structured in three categories: Applications, Measurand, and technology.
For each category, several technical committees have been founded.
The activities of the committees are related to their specific topic and are focused on the organization of technical events, evaluation of award ‘s candidates, and interaction with industry.

Soft sensor or virtual sensor is a common name for software where several measurements are processed together. Commonly soft sensors are based on control theory and also receive the name of state observer. There may be dozens or even hundreds of measurements. The interaction of the signals can be used for calculating new quantities that need not be measured. Soft sensors are especially useful in data fusion, where measurements of different characteristics and dynamics are combined. It can be used for fault diagnosis as well as control applications.

Chair: Alessandro Tognetti

A biosensor is an analytical device, used for the detection of a chemical substance, that combines a biological component with a physicochemical detector. The sensitive biological element, e.g. tissue, microorganisms, organelles, cell receptors, enzymes, antibodies, nucleic acids, etc., is a biologically derived material or biomimetic component that interacts, binds, or recognizes with the analyte under study.

Chair: Aimè Lay Ekuakille

Nanosensors are nanoscale devices that measure physical quantities and convert those quantities to signals that can be detected and analyzed.

Chair: Stefania Campopiano & Agostino Iadicicco

Fibers have many uses in remote sensing. Depending on the application, fiber may be used because of its small size, or because no electrical power is needed at the remote location, or because many sensors can be multiplexed along the length of a fiber by using light wavelength shift for each sensor, or by sensing the time delay as light passes along the fiber through each sensor

Chair: Carlo Massaroni

Medicine, engineering, sports science aim to measure important quantities related to the biomechanics in gait analysis, orthopaedic biomechanics, ergonomy, human factor engineering, rehabilitation, sports biomechanics, among others.

The optoelectronics concerns electronic devices interacting with the light interfacing electrical and optical domains. In particular, the photodetection, operating an optical-to-electrical transduction, represent an important task in sensing systems and optical communications and can be performed by different optical sensing devices.

Noise and vibration are topics that have always interested the scientific community. The technological improvements characterizing the evolution of acoustic (e.g. from capacitive to MEMS microphones) and vibration sensors (e.g. MEMS accelerometers or non-contact device as laser Doppler Vibrometers) have made it possible the growth of knowledge in these areas and their application to broad and different fields, from dynamic testing, machine diagnostics to physiological sensing.

Chair: Luca Vollero

The availability of cheap COTS microcontrollers and analogue sensors, and the diffusion of the IoT paradigm fostered and are encouraging the implementation of digital sensors that mix sensing capabilities with computing and communication functionalities.

Chair: Giuseppe Ferri

The electronic interface is particularly important in both sensor and sensor systems. A suitable sensor interface has to be able to adapt itself to different kinds of sensors whatever the measurand may be, through appropriate electronic circuits, and to improve signal processing by suitable circuit design able to reduce as much as possible the electronic noise.

Chemical sensors based on electrical and electrochemical transduction principles have attracted intensive research interest in the past years and have been used for a wide range of applications, due to their numerous advantages, like small sizes, high sensitivities in detecting very low concentrations of gas in gaseous mixtures or analytes in liquids (at ppb and nanomolar concentration level, or less, respectively), possibility of on-line measurements and low cost.
