Online course material
This website is for hosting teaching materials for my classes at James Cook University. If you are one of my students, this site is your primary reference material for the teaching material (e.g. lecture notes, tutorial questions, practicals, etc.) At present, I am using this website for one subject only, which is Sensor Technologies. Other classes have content hosted on Blackboard.
If you are not one of my students, then are you still welcome to browse the material. I hope it is useful to you.
EE3901/EE5901 Sensor Technologies
Sensors are a fundamental component of many electronic systems. This subject teaches students how to integrate sensors within their designs. Both hardware and software aspects are addressed. On the software side, sensing is considered as an estimation problem, and sensor fusion algorithms are applied to incorporate sensor data into a process or system model. On the hardware side, students learn how to design and use interface circuits for resistive, capacitive, inductive, piezoelectric, and voltage generating sensors. The subject also surveys a range of common sensor types, and investigates the operational principles and use cases of each type.
