Not applicable.

Aims

Introduce students via lectures, practical sessions to the field of measurement. Present to students commons electrical circuits, one may encounter while measuring. Demonstrate various approaches to measure chosen physical properties. Introduce students to various interfaces he may use to retrieve data from sensors and approaches to evaluate these data.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

In the case
of missed HW laboratories it is possible to replace them until the
laboratory is ready for further laboratory practice. Please inform the head of the laboratory or the course supervisor without any delay.
