How to use sensor in a sentence?

  1. Filomena Simone:

    We can monitor the position of the finger without adding any other sensor; only exploiting this embedded feature of the wire. This helps us to always preserve a very lightweight structure. This is a big deal because normally prostheses until now are very heavy.

  2. Erik Gordon:

    You have to get dissimilar components like frames, transmissions, seating, brake and sensor systems to fit and work together.

  3. Chris Roberts:

    The gripper has got a sensor inside it so it can sense the pressure of the vacuum tubes as they close around the fruit. And by only applying a vacuum to the ones that gripped, the ones where there's a seal, we can spread the pressure across the fruit so we're not bruising it but we still apply a consistent pressure that allows us to pick up heavier objects.

  4. Shree Nayar:

    What we have done is a calculation that shows that you can take the same design and make a compact image sensor chip with it. Of course that chip would be able to capture less light and therefore harvest less energy, because it is smaller. But it turns out when you make it a chip it also consumes less power.

  5. Michael Mancuso:

    Imagine the kind of data we could capture if patient monitors were as small as a dime. As sensor technology evolves, the industry will move toward more unobtrusive monitoring options that will be able to capture patient vitals and other data from sensors embedded into clothing or other materials, we could give patients a robe or necklace as soon as they enter the hospital, and monitor their journey across the health continuum, allowing clinicians to make more informed diagnosis and effective treatment plans. This kind of technology can also be critical in identifying physiological changes from a distance, making it easier to monitor patient traffic, especially during an epidemic.
