Course specification

Course is active from 21.10.2012..

Acquiring basic knowledge in the field of sensors and actuators and their application in medicine.
- Understanding the basic principles of various sensors and actuators, applicable in medical equipment - Ability to understand and interpret technical properties and the right selections of sensors and actuators from the manufacturer manuals for the specific application in medicine. -Ability to install and successfully apply sensors or actuators in some medical applications - Ability to design electronic circuits for signal processing of simple sensors (pressure, temperature or heart rate…) - Ability to design electronic circuits for excitation of simple actuators (motors, valves…)
Measurement principles and sensor and actuator techniques. Technical properties of sensors and actuators. Methods of sensor and actuator classification. Types of sensors (sensors of linear and angular displacement, speed sensors, accelerometers, force and torque; pressure sensors, level and flow; sensors for measuring temperature and humidity, proximity sensors, tactile sensors). Vision sensors. Types of actuators (electromechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic) and their applications (light modulators and detectors; flow controllers, switches, valves, motors, electromagnets). Packaging (housing). Modern integrated micro-actuators (positioners, optical elements).
Lectures. Auditory Practice. Laboratory Practice. Consultations. The student can take a colloquium from parts of the course which represent a logical whole (sensors, actuators). He/she can do a detailed project in sensor and/or actuator application within some medical system. In that case, the final examination consists of the oral project defense and answers to theoretical questions.
