About The Book

This book is designed for senior undergraduates as well as postgraduates specializing in Measurement and Instrumentation as a major. It is also targeted towards practicing engineers and researchers seeking exposure of certain advanced techniques of measurement. Apart from few chapters on fundamental topics, included for continuity, the book presents a collection of specialized sensing and signal processing techniques not easily found between two covers. Each chapter of this edited volume presents, in a lucid style, a brief background, the motivations, principles involved and the techniques, finally ending in its application. A beginner, in the specific areas of Measurement and Instrumentation presented here, will find sufficient material to start with. Coverage :- ? Sensors: Electrical, Optical, Chemical, Biochemical, Nucleonic, Microwave and MEMS ? Signal Conditioning and Processing: Signal Conditioning, Signal Processing, Filtering, Telemetry and Data Communication ? Image Based Instrumentation: Biomedical and Remote Sensing ? Intelligent Instrumentation: Sensor Fusion and Signal Estimation ? Applications: Irrigation, Medical, Robotic, Bioprocess and Two-phase Flow. Chapters of this book have been written by the faculty members and research scholars of Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur based on their experience of research and teaching over three decades in the field of Measurement and Instrumentation.
