Industrial Sensors


Sensors are devices that sense the presence or absence of objects. Sensors perform a number of functions in automated manufacturing and material handling systems. For example, sensors can determine if an object is present, if tooling is broken, or if product is running down a conveyor line.

Sensors have contributed significantly to recent advances in manufacturing technology. Using a sensor makes a process or system more automated and removes the need for human operators to monitor and control the situation.

  • Accuracy: The agreement between the actual value and the measured value
  • Resolution: The change in measured variable to which the sensor will respond
  • Repeatability: Variation of sensor measurements when the same quantity is measured several times
  • Range: Upper and lower limits of the variable that can be measured
  • Sensitivity and Linearity

The basic operation and application of three major sensor categories:

  • Limit Switches,
  • Proximity Sensors
  • Photoelectric Sensors


  • To provide a means to help measuring several physical parameters in multiple points by autonomous robots able to navigate and climb structures, handling sensors or special non destructive testing equipment.
  • To develop a surveillance robotic system able to detect leakages of fluids using vision system in the range of thermal and visible or/and gas sensors.
  • Robotized non destructive testing of surface deterioration of equipment in extensive plants and detection of broken elements.
  • Robotized non destructive testing of internal deterioration in pipes and walls of tanks, chimneys etc., from outside the element to be inspected.
  • Ground robots able to navigate in large industrial plants handling sensors and manipulator for inspection and maintenance, and overcoming obstacles and terrain conditions.


A sensor can be thought of as an automatic switch. In a factory, a sensor can be used to detect a problem on the line and stop the line automatically. Or, in your home, a sensor could be used as a security device to detect an open window or door.


  • Students: Who are looking to build a better career in technology. There is going to be a very high demand for people who have knowledge and the ability to contribute to IoT projects in the organizations.

  • Software professionals: Who are looking to expand their horizons by getting exposure to latest technologies like Big Data, Analytics, Mobile computing, Cloud computing, etc. along with in-depth understanding of IoT.

  • Electronics engineers: Who are aware that a golden period is coming for them soon and want to reach out beyond their current scope that limits them to just electronics.

  • Industry professionals: Working in pharmaceutical, real estate, manufacturing, electrical, retail, healthcare and a number of other verticals and businesses who are foresighted to see the disruption
