Sensors, Transducers & Actuators

Sensors are materials that respond to a physical stimulus, such as a change in temperature, pressure, or illumination, and transmit a resulting signal for monitoring or operating a control. Actuators are materials that respond to a stimulus in the form of a mechanical property change such as a dimensional or a viscosity change. A transducer is a device that converts variations physical parameters into an electrical signal, or vice versa. These are key elements of smart controlling systems and structures.
