Learning outcomes of the course unit
Students will be able to:
- Get a basic, in good engineering practice to use the knowledge and skills of sensor technology and sensors
- Discuss basic design concept of the measuring chain
- To determine the optimal method of measurement,
- Define the measured data and
- Describe the process and evaluate the measured results
- To measure basic physical quantities and
Students will acquire basic knowledge and skills (including basic practical) of measurement methods most frequently used physical quantities, including the design concept of measurement, processing and interpretation of results.
Knowledge is required in the Bachelor's degree level (BMFV) and valid examination for qualifying workers for an independent activity (within the meaning of § 6 of the Decree).
Graduates who writes the course should be chopen:
- Describe different types (types of) sensors,
- Explain the modulation used in sensors,
- Describe and list the analog and digital sensors and measurement methods,
- Explain interference phenomena and the resulting possibilities
- Discuss and explain various types of interferometers
- Define and design the basic blocks measuring systems,
- Can measure basic physical quantities and
- And discuss application possibilities, if necessary. more.
Those interested in the course should be equipped with the knowledge of basic physical and electrical principles.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.
Techning methods include lectures, computer laboratories and practical laboratories. Course is taking advantage of e-learning (Moodle) system. Students have to write a single project/assignment during the course.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
The test focuses on the verification of knowledge (orientation) information literacy course. He has written a mandatory laboratory (numeric).
Written part of exam 20 - 70
Language of instruction
Basic conceptions, metrology, legal metrology.
Position and dimensions measurements.
Velocity and acceleration measurements.
Forces and weight measurements.
Pressure and moment measurements.
Temperature, heat and thermal flow measurements.
Light and infrared emission measurements.
Ionizating emission measurements.
Sensors nad measurements of humidity, level and flow.
Material composition measurements.
Sensor informatics, actual situation, perspectives.
The goal of the course is to obtain students with basic non-electrical quantities measurement methods. It should allow knowledges for qualified solution of the most appropriate method, sensor type and instrumentation, notice to the problems beared on measurement channel design (parasitic effects, calibration, diagnostics and next).
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
Laboratory is compulsory, properly excused absences laboratory exercises (maximum of two) can be arranged with the teacher substitute (usually in the credit week).
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and usually provides annual public notice.
