Mikroniek April 2023: Sensors & Actuators
The April issue of Mikroniek is devoted to the theme of Sensors & Actuators. DSPE president Hans Krikhaar kicks off playfully in his editorial, with turning the Ramses Shaffy hit, “Zing, vecht, huil, bid, lach, werk en bewonder”, into a smart metrology version: Sense, collect, analyse, learn, improve, act and admire!
The first theme article extends the inertial match principle, widely used for actuator selection, to applications where the payload is subject to a constant force (such as gravity) or friction. Other features include a nanomeasuring and nanopositioning machine/platform for nanometrology, and a fibre-optical sensing approach to measuring ground reaction forces in running-specific prostheses.
