Abstract

There are a vast number of different sensors being used in robotics, applying different measurement techniques, and using different interfaces to a controller. This, unfortunately, makes sensors a difficult subject to cover. We will, however, select a number of typical sensor systems and discuss their details in hardware and software. The scope of this chapter is more on interfacing sensors to controllers than on understanding the internal construction of sensors themselves.
