AIC Seminar Series

Sensor Arrays, Artificial Senses, Awareness, Intelligence

Joseph Stetter

Date:  Thursday, May 12th 2005 at 4:00pm

Location:  EJ228  (Directions)


Sensor arrays are common in both the physical and chem/bio-sensor worlds. Sensor array devices exist that can image light, magnetic fields, and stress, thus creating artificial eyes, MRIs, and robotic touch as well as devices that can image in chemical and biological spaces creating artificial or electronic noses, tongues, and pancreases. In addition to imaging applications, sensor arrays are known to provide the basis for effective research tools to consumer products. Chemical sensor array systems, i.e. sensor array with integrated electronics and intelligent software, can process the sensor inputs to answer complex questions such as identification of the particular smell of a perfume or the diagnosis of infectious disease. Our own human sensors make us aware of the world around us. Sensor arrays are being developed to mimic nature and produce electronic versions of our eyes, ears, nose, and immune system [1]. These artificial senses are being tuned to solve specific problems that range from the detection of diabetes to the discovery of terrorist threats.
