Prerequisite/Recommended prerequisite for
participation in the module
The module is based on knowledge achieved in the project module
Microprocessor based systems or similar.
Content, progress and pedagogy of the
- Have knowledge about instrumentation and conditioning of
sensors and the conversion of measurement variables into electrical
- Have obtained knowledge about calibration and signal processing
for the measurements systems.
- Be able to design and implement sensor and actuator interface
hardware to the microprocessor
- Must have knowledge of signal processing of measured data both
in real-time and offline.
- Have obtained knowledge of the design of first and second order
analogue filters for conditioning of measurements.
- Be able to understand the importance of signal conditioning and
processing for measurement devices.
- Be able to understand the connections and interfaces between
microprocessors and sensor and actuator hardware
- Be able to understand the design of analogue filters and their
effect on measurements
- Based on the above, be able to create requirements and test
specifications that enable the completed system to be tested
- Be able to design and implement basic analogue and digital
circuits and demonstration in laboratory
- Be able to design and implement instrumentation for systems
based on demanded specifications
- Independently analyse and implement suitable signal processing
- Have a fundamental understanding of analogue filters, signal
conditioning, data acquisition
- Be able to implement and test the developed system with the
purpose of verifying the hypothesis, as well as draw conclusions
based on the achieved result.
